Help Us Build Handwashing 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.


The impact of a large-scale outbreak on poor and vulnerable children in under-resourced communities would have far-reaching implications. Our initial goal of building 10 handwashing stations in informal settlements is aimed at safeguarding the hygiene, health, and education of kids.

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
