Join the Challenge and Help Stop the Spread of COVID-19
Handwashing is a key component to halting the spread of COVID-19, yet more than 2.2 billion people around the world lack clean, safe water that’s necessary for this critical hygiene practice.
We need your help in spreading the word and ensuring that throughout this health crisis, everyone has #SafeHandsSafeWater!
There are three ways to join the #SafeHandsSafeWater campaign:
Wash your hands! Record it. Tag it. Share it!
Did you wash your hands today? In many countries, safe water for handwashing is not available.
By washing your hands with soap and water—and sharing your reasons why—we can band together to raise awareness, and provide safe water so that ALL can have safe hands.
Participate in the challenge on social media by sharing a unique photo or video of you washing your hands, and share why handwashing is important to you. Tag Water Mission on Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter, to share your #SafeHandsSafeWater story. Challenge 3 friends by tagging them in your post and remind them to wash their hands.
Pray with us—lift up those prayer hands for safe hands, safe water!
As COVID-19 persists, we pray for the health and safety of thousands of people in under-resourced communities around the world that lack resources such as safe water and soap–basic materials that aid in preventing the spread of disease.
Give the gift of handwashing—and save lives!
To date, we have installed nearly 2,000 handwashing stations around the world. With your gifts, Water Mission will install an additional 1,000 handwashing stations in schools and healthcare facilities.

Our COVID-19 Response
Water Mission is currently providing safe water, handwashing stations, and hygiene training focused on preventing the spread of the virus across hundreds of communities, healthcare facilities, and refugee camps spanning nine countries. In many of these countries, a majority of the population does not have soap, safe water, or facilities for handwashing. Without such resources, communities are at a significantly higher risk of virus transmission. Learn More
