Help Us Build EaziWash Stations

The recent outbreak of the virus has rapidly become a global pandemic. As cases continue to rise in South Africa, UNICEF is on the ground working to protect affected children and families in densely populated informal settlements.



We are bringing the water to where the children are.

We have recognised that because the national lockdown has prevented children from being at school, they are desperately in need of handwashing stations close to home.

By installing EaziWash stations to mitigate the spread of COVID-19 in communities, we are protecting these children in a more sustainable way.

The EaziWash water stations feature a self-closing and self-cleaning water and liquid soap outlet.

If you’d like to know more about UNICEF’s response to the Coronavirus emergency, please see our FAQ page.

How can I avoid the risk of infection?

Here are four precautions you and your family can take to avoid infection:

Wash your hands frequently using soap and water or an alcohol-based hand rub
Cover mouth and nose with flexed elbow or tissue when coughing or sneezing. Dispose of used tissue immediately
Avoid close contact with anyone who has cold or flu-like symptoms
Seek medical care early if you or your child has a fever, cough or difficulty breathing

Take Action

We urgently need your help to build handwashing stations for kids in informal settlements. Be kind and help stop the spread of life-threatening viruses.
