‘Hand-washing is important, even the PM says so’- Kajol

In a country where many children die of preventable diseases, film actress-wife-mother Kajol Devgan has found a new mission in life. She is supporting Lifebuoy’s ‘Help a Child Reach 5’ campaign. All over the world one child die from diarrhea or pneumonia every 15 seconds – that’s two million children each year. Hand washing with soap can reduce diarrhea by 45% and pneumonia by 23%, in India where over 6 lakh children under 5 die each year due to diarrhoea and pneumonia.
