“Well, hand-washing with soap is so dear to me,” Priscah opens up with a smile. “My hands are the main carriers of disease-causing germs, hence washing them is the first line of defence against germs. Ultimately, I create a healthier environment for myself and everyone around me,” she explains.
Duncan, a father of two is a hand-washing ninja both at work and at home. He feels responsible for his kids’ hygiene and is obliged to ensure cleanliness by ensuring the hand-washing culture is adopted. “I lead by example,” he says. “I make sure we all hand-wash with antiseptic soap.
