Many people do not realize the importance of Hand Washing, especially before eating food or fruits etc. using our hands, similarly, after using the toilet or when in contact with any kind of liquid unknown to us. Please read below this article on the benefits of Hand-Washing.
When visiting hospitals, nursing homes or health clinics, one should use Antiseptic hand rubbing liquid, the dispensers are kept at several spots for visitors and others.
Washing your hands correctly (or using an alcohol-based hand rub) is the most effective thing you can do to protect yourself against a number of infectious diseases, such as influenza (the "flu") and the common cold. Not only will it help keep you healthy, it will help prevent the spread of infectious diseases to others.
Even if your hands appear to be clean, they may carry germs. Hands pick up micro-organisms (germs) in a number of ways.
When people who are sick sneeze or cough, the germs that are making them sick are expelled into the air in tiny droplets. If these droplets get onto your hands, and then you touch your mouth, eyes or nose without washing away the germs, you carry the infection. You can also get sick if you don't wash your hands before and after preparing food, after handling raw meat, and after using the toilet.

Cholera is an acute diarrheal disease caused by an infection in the intestines that can kill even a healthy adult in a matter of hours. Symptoms, including severe watery diarrhea, can surface in as little as two hours or up to five days after infection, and can then trigger extreme dehydration and kidney failure. With such a short incubation period, cholera can easily explode into an outbreak, as is the case currently in Central Haiti where there have been over 135 confirmed deaths.
I am very grateful to all our Jamaats in mainland Africa and in the Indian Ocean Islands of Madagascar and Reunion for their unflinching support and commitment towards this annual event of the Africa Federation. Solidarity Day also marks the auspicious occasion of the birth anniversary of Imam-e-Zamana (ATFS), and the occasion has been chosen for fund raising through various activities organized by our Jamaats. Donation of any sums, whether small or big reflects the nobility and generosity of our community members in fulfilling religious and moral obligations we have towards charity and helping the poor and less fortunate members of our community. I wish to applaud youths (both girls and boys) of our community in all our Jamaats who worked with great dedication and spearheaded the entire project, and I look forward for the same zest in the coming year – Inshaállah. Thank you all very much.
