On Thursday 15 and Friday 16 October 2020 starting at 3 PM - IRC will be organising in commemoration of Global Handwashing Day 2020, a public event with the message 'Clean hands, good health: wash hands regularly with soap'.

This event targets the general public and school stakeholders. It aims to highlight the importance of handwashing with soap, while making it seem like a simple and effective act to prevent the spread of disease, through awareness-raising activities in a relaxed environment. It will help to establish the habit of handwashing among the population by transforming a daily chore into an easy routine. In addition, the sensitisation will be carried out through various specially designed interactive activities: hand washing with hydroalcoholic gel for 2,000 cyclists and motorcyclists, operation "Let's all take a break to wash our hands with soap" live, aerobic and popular cross-country warm-up, performance of the Majorettes, broadcasting of spots and visuals with clean hands, hand washing kits to the Ministry of Culture and the Media.
