Global Handwashing Day was commemorated on 15 October 2009 in Zimbabwe. Some participants commented that they thought they knew how to wash their hands, but only learnt proper hand washing on that day.
The fourth 2009 Water
Voice issue features articles about how children are often not considered in
the sanitation dialogue, cholera assessments in Chipinge District, World
Environment Day, the third International WASH Practitioners’ Marketplace and
