2. The Wiggles: UNICEF Handwashing Song
The Wiggles and UNICEF Australia teamed up in 2019 to create a song for Global Handwashing Day 2019. Written and sung by The Wiggles, the song seeks to motivate millions of children around the world to make washing their hands with soap a simple and enjoyable habit before eating food and after touching animals or going to the toilet.
As Ambassadors for UNICEF Australia, The Wiggles want to help raise awareness that handwashing with soap is an easy, effective and affordable way to prevent illness and diseases, and save lives. Every day, around 800 children under the age of five die from preventable diseases caused by poor water, and lack of sanitation and hygiene. Washing hands with soap before eating and after using the toilet can help reduce the incidence of diarrhoeal diseases, which are a major killer of children in developing countries, by almost 50 per cent.
