The annual Global Handwashing Day is unique in many ways this year. With the unprecedented situation arising due to the pandemic, hand hygiene has witnessed a significant increase in awareness and practise.

However, with the unlock and easing of restrictions, many have relaxed their approach towards preventive hygiene and become a bit complacent about washing hands.

The Mouth and Foot Painting Artists Association (MFPA) in collaboration with Savlon Swasth India begin a handwashing movement with #NoHandUnwashed.

Hand hygiene is regarded as one of the most important elements to prevent the spread of infection. #NoHandUnwashed reiterates the significance and acknowledges that hygiene is non-discriminatory.

MFPA, India with Savlon Swasth India Mission, celebrates this year's global theme of hand hygiene for all in a unique and inspiring collaboration.

Swapna Augustine, a celebrated foot artist of MFPA, India presents a thought-provoking perspective to unveil the #NoHandUnwashed movement. As the protagonist, Augustine delivers a powerful and inspiring message. Being differently-abled doesn't constraint an artist from practicing good hand-hygiene and a glimpse through her everyday life reinforces the same.

The film evokes an emotional response to the simple appeal to imbibe and make washing hands a habit.

This partnership is a step forward in reiterating the culture of hand hygiene for a healthier nation and augments the core belief of Savlon Swasth India Mission to continue encouraging behavioural change towards washing hands.

Ten celebrated mouth and foot artists across India are creating their unique interpretation of the #NoHandUnwashed movement and this will be showcased on social platforms beginning the October 15th.
