Saponaria Industries Nigeria Limited has commenced its ‘A Million Clean Hands’ campaign.
Speaking at the unveiling, which held at Teslim Elias Model Primary School, Isale Eko, Lagos, Managing Director of the firm, Ashish Misra said personal hygiene and sanitation is the focus driving the campaign.
“Washing your hands properly is one of the most important things you can do to help prevent and control the spread of many illnesses.
People must know that washing hands with soap and water is the first line of defence against disease and illness.
Good hand hygiene will reduce the risk of things like flu, food poisoning and healthcare associated infections being passed from person to person,” he said.
According to Ashish, the programme is targeted at schools in lower income communities..
