The government of Karamoja recently launched an ‘I Wash, You Wash' campaign. According to a report, only 16% of those living in the region wash their hands with soap. Moreover, according to Eng Olweny Lamu, three-quarters of diseases are caused by unhygienic practices.
The campaign launched at Quality Supermarket in Naalya, Kampala. The government partnered with the supermarket to collect and distribute soap to individuals who are vulnerable in primary schools in Karamoja. The initiative aims to have 100% of Ugandans washing their hands at all critical times by 2030.
“We encourage all our esteemed customers to take part in this campaign, by buying a bar of soap and donating a piece at the collection points in all our branches which will be given to schools in Karamoja,” said Hellen Mutoni, the public relations officer at Quality Supermarket.
