People to People International is leveraging our Global Chapter network to establish hand-washing stations throughout the world. Washing your hands is the number one thing you can do to help prevent the spread of disease. However, in far too many countries, this is way more difficult than it needs to be. Access to clean water, not to mention effective hand sanitizer, can be difficult to come by.
For only $50, you can provide a clean, accessible and effective hand-washing station to some of the poorest parts of the world. As we now know, it does not take long for a disease to travel throughout the world and cause incredible human and financial destruction. Viruses can survive crossing a nation’s borders and differing climates, but they generally are defeated by an act as incredibly simple as effective hand-washing with a sanitizer.
Our mission has always been Peace Through Understanding. We are now expanding that message to encourage Health Through Understanding–understanding what diseases are, how they spread, and how we can defeat them. Please join us in this goal.
