The Power of a Bar of Soap

A bar of soap can be used for a lot of things, and it has a great power when we are using it for handwashing. It sounds so basic, but global statistics say that more than 50% of the people don’t wash their hands before leaving the bathroom. The cause of this is not due to the lack of soap or water, it’s mainly related to culture. Regarding this, let’s talk about why it is so important to use a bar of soap for handwashing.


The spread of cholera, pneumonia, flu, trachome and the recently EBOLA, can be decreased/avoided by just using a bar of soap. Thousands of children are dying before their fifth birthday. Diseases like cholera and pneumonia are between the causes of the children deaths. We can avoid the children from getting cholera in 50% and in 30% from getting pneumonia by simply teaching the habit of handwashing with soap frequently.


Let’s help the children and ourselves!
