Tippy tap: a low-tech solution to a handwashing problem

There seem to be two important frontline ways to help slow the spread of the Covid-19 virus: wearing cloth masks and frequent hand washing.

Easier said than done for those who live in places where water is scarce and water taps nonexistent.

From WHO Africa, the “tippy tap”. Check it out! (includes a pretty good demonstration of hand washing technique if you need a refresher course.)

If you have your own source of water for handwashing, and would like to help those who don’t, A Rocha Uganda is accepting donations to provide Tippy-taps to schools and others who need them. Click for information and to make a donation.
