Message from Dr. David Lewis Anderson
During a recent event marking the United Nations "Global Handwashing Day," good handwashing practices were identified as the single most effective way to avoid contracting diseases. This includes diseases such as acute respiratory illnesses and diarrhoea-related diseases like cholera and dysentery.
These diseases cause 3.5 million deaths among children under five each year and they are preventable. We are proud to recommend and sponsor Bleulight's efforts to promote hygiene and provide soap for children and families in Myanmar.
We would welcome and encourage you to reach more about this project and how easy it is to give the gift of child health and disease prevention.
