Safeguard Global Handwashing Day 2017

In line with Safeguard's 50th year tradition of  hand washing education to prevent diseases and save lives, they led a movement to healthier Philippines through the Global Handwashing Day (GHD) celebration at Baseco Compound in Manila last October 12.

It has been discovered that Filipinos touch more than 23 other people per day, summing up to more than 90 ‘touches’ a day on average. However, they wash our hands only 5 times a day! There are other shocking findings that show opportunities for improvement on handwashing habits particular on specific occasions:

After using the toilet:
·         7 out of 10 Filipinos CLAIM to wash their hands after using the toilet but—ONLY 2 out of 10 really do.
·         A shocking 64% of Filipinas DO NOT wash their hands at all after using a mall toilet.

Before eating and cooking:
·         It was observed that 60% of females washed their hands with water ONLY before cooking.
·         Before feeding the kids, 40% washed their hands with water ONLY.

Before and after bonding:
o   80% of Filipinos DO NOT wash their hands after shaking hands with another person
o   40% of Filipinos DO NOT wash their hands before touching young children

After playing or travelling:
o   49% DO NOT wash their hands after using their mobile phones
o   50% DO NOT wash their hands after traveling on public transportation 


To bring attention to the importance of proper and habitual hand washing, Safeguard partnered with one of the most prominent personalities in the country today, "Pambansang Bae" Alden Richards. The nation's leading soap and Alden joined forces to educate Filipinos of the importance of hand washing through the power of a song.

Bing has had her share of ups and downs when it comes to her weight, especially being in an industry that constantly expects one to look good and be in great shape. So in her late 30s, she had liposuction done on her arms and legs.

“When you see yourself in the mirror at home after the procedure, yes you're thin. But when I removed the bandages, I saw myself with cuts and bruises. That's when I cried and felt like I betrayed myself. Sinaktan ko ang sarili ko.”

Her daughters Alyssa and Gabby were with her as she recovered, tending her wounds and changing her bandages. “After I had the procedure done, my daughters made me promise not to go under the knife again.”
