“Had a great time playing football with these cute little kids in Bhutan. After the game, we washed our hands with soap to demonstrate that playing is important but what’s even more important is to wash our hands after any activity, especially before eating food,” he wrote on his official twitter handle.
The 45-year-old also met the Interim Prime Minister of Bhutan, Dasho Tshering Wangchuk to discuss sanitation and hygiene initiatives.
“Meeting the Interim Prime Minister of Bhutan, Dasho Tshering Wangchuk, was an honour. It Was wonderful discussing the various hand sanitation awareness initiatives,” he wrote.
Sachin has also appeared in various public service campaigns across India, earlier this month he was lauded by the UNICEF representative in India, Karin Hulshof for his dedication of time and energy with the motive to promote safety among Indian kids.
Sachin also emphasized on the importance of sanitation, stating how he also follows the same within his family by reminding his two children to wash their hands after meals as it fosters safety and protection against deadly diseases.
India is rampant with deadly diseases which root out of poor sanitation and the most-affected lot are the children and that is majorly why UNICEF in collaboration with various boards of Indian government are rigorously promoting sanitation drives across the nation.
