I am always reminded of my mom telling me till date to wash my hands before even I start doing some little work in kitchen or otherwise! it may sound a bit awkward but it is so important in real sense. A delicious doughnut, mouth-watering sev puri, small pebbles around the garden, a friendly pet cat or dog — just some of the kinds of fun things the kids love to bring home and enjoy with friends. But these goodies also can bring millions &millions of germs with them. Kids don't always listen when parents tell them to wash their hands before eating, after using the bathroom, or when they come inside from playing. But it's a message worth repeating — hand washing is by far the best way to prevent germs from spreading and to keep kids from getting sick.
Especially when kids come into contact with the unseen germs resting comfortably in various sources of attraction! , they somehow unknowingly become infected simply by touching their eyes, nose, or mouth. And once infected by these unseen germs, it's then just a matter of time before they and then the other family members come down with the similar kind of illness.
So the underline statement is that a "Good hand washing" habit is the first line of defence against the spread of many illnesses — from the common cold to more serious infections, such as meningitis, the flu, hepatitis A, and most types of infectious diarrhoea.
I may go a step further in saying that, if expecting mothers do not follow the "Good hand washing" habit, they attract similar flu, stomach illnesses, that not only affect them but the unborn child. Above all it becomes the responsibility rather a greater responsibility as soon as you conceive. More than the Expecting and New Mother, It’s also the responsibility of the people coming in direct contact with the small child, who cannot speak or show his/her anguish at the unhealthy touch!
The mother may sound rude, if she asks people to sanitise their hands before touching your child,” Do Not Hesitate”, it’s your child “PROTECT HIM/HER”. It’s a kind of fight for safety and you have all the right to demand!
Words such as Help, Reach, Life are all associated with Child.....what a way to be connected to a fantastic initiative by @lifebuoy....At first the thought of being invited as blogger to the mega event for the launch of the https://youtu.be/VsnP_6kdtDY, I had the attraction of meeting Kajol, the actress whose die hard fan that I have been for years! but being a Brand Ambassador for the campaign #HelpChildReach5 & @Lifebuoy, I believe Hindustan Lever has done absolute justice to the serious initiative at the National level.
As support to the initiative I am happy to blog about the campaign! Happy Hand washing! Support and share the video https://youtu.be/VsnP_6kdtDY. You maybe do your responsibility as a citizen of India towards Swachh Bharat! Healthy Bharat!
