For Global Handwashing day — Handwash Counter

There is a Global Handwashing Day — and it’s October 15.

The idea behind Global Handwashing day is to educate children around the world about good hand hygiene.

In honor of World Handwashing day, I have created a free app for iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch. Handwash counter does exactly what it says — it counts the number of times you wash your hands. It also can give you instructions for washing your hands, complete with a 20-second countdown timer.  To help educate and brig greater awareness of hand hygiene, please download my app from here: https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/handwash-counter/id567706635?mt=8
Not washing your hands, even in biblical times, was considered fatal.  Torah mentions both the construction of a handsink and the washing of hands in Exodus 30:17-20.

17 And the LORD spoke unto Moses, saying: 18 ‘Thou shalt also make a laver of brass, and the base thereof of brass, whereat to wash; and thou shalt put it between the tent of meeting and the altar, and thou shalt put water therein. 19 And Aaron and his sons shall wash their hands and their feet thereat; 20 when they go into the tent of meeting, they shall wash with water, that they die not; or when they come near to the altar to minister, to cause an offering made by fire to smoke unto the LORD; 21 so they shall wash their hands and their feet, that they die not; and it shall be a statute for ever to them, even to him and to his seed throughout their generations.’ {P}

 

 

The world health organization estimate that millions of children would not fall ill to fatal diseases if all they did was wash their hands regularly with soap and water.  Do what you can to prevent disease. Wash your hands.
