Sizwe Ndlovu and Matthew Brittain of the Men's South African Rowing Lightweight Four Olympic Gold Medal Champions, joined by over 500 learners and their teachers from all over Gauteng, put up their hands in support of handwashing with soap and running water on Global Handwashing Day, 15 October, at Constitution Hill in Johannesburg.

"As Olympic athletes we need to keep healthy and we believe in the importance of handwashing due to the fact that comprehensive research has shown that infections such as pneumonia and diarrhea are not only preventable by washing hands using soap and running water, but can be reduced by up to 75% with good hygiene practices."
