Have you ever wondered when you stay in a hotel what happens to those used soaps and other toiletries you leave in your room?

Steve Hooper, as Sydney Rotary District's go to person ("Soap Aid Coordinator) with Soap Aid will answer this question and share how Rotary clubs can help in recycling used hotel soaps for Soap Aid.  

March is Rotary's water and sanitation month.

Today across the globe over 2 billion people lack adequate sanitation.  As a direct result, it is estimated that 1.8 million children under the age of 5 die each year due to hygiene related illnesses.

This equates to 6,000 deaths each day. One of the major causes of childhood deaths is diarrhoea.

By the simple act of a child washing their hands with a bar of soap, we could potentially reduce the number of diarrhoea cases by over 40 per cent.
