Effective hand washing is more important than ever in South Africa because of COVID-19
They have been using Teal portable hand washing stations as an integral part of their infection control strategy since 2019 as they provide up to 1800 meals a day for people in need.
The organisation was recently involved in a large food project with KFC, and provided an Easywash to the site to ensure that hand hygiene remained a top priority.
Washing hands and saving water
1000 Hills provide up to 1800 meals a day for people in need and also enable a meals on wheels program to bring food to those that don’t have easy access or a means of transport. They also run a hugely beneficial karate project – offering Grade R teaching facilities – as well as providing after high quality after school care.
Water is a precious commodity in many of the regions supported by 1000 Hills. The Teal portable sinks help people to maintain a very high standard of hand hygiene, despited needing very little water with which to be totally effective.
Alec Banks of GS Hygiene (Pty) who provided the Teal hand washing stations said
“Our Tealwash portable sinks were bought to offer portable options that can be used anywhere due to 1000 Hills being involved in many different outreaches and projects, our products are able to help as they can be used indoors or outdoors and do not require a water supply or electricity.”
*The EasyWash is known at the WashStand in the UK.
