Clean hands for all children

Written and sung by The Wiggles, the song seeks to motivate millions of children around the world to make washing their hands with soap a simple and enjoyable habit before eating food and after touching animals or going to the toilet. The new song is being released for Global Handwashing Day, today, for which the theme is “Clean Hands for All”.

As Ambassadors for UNICEF Australia, The Wiggles want to help raise awareness that handwashing with soap is an easy, effective and affordable way to prevent illness and diseases, and save lives.

Yellow Wiggle Emma Watkins said, "Music can make early life lessons enjoyable whilst being educational at the same time. We hope our ‘Handwashing Song’ will help to make handwashing fun for children and those caring for them and stop germs spreading to keep everyone healthy.”
