Dettol Pakistan has always been active in making Pakistani society hygienic and germ free. This time around, in its quest to make everyone clean and healthy; Dettol made a new Guinness World Record for the “Most Participants in a Hand Washing Relay”, on Global Hand Washing Day.
The event kicked off at Metro Cash & Carry in Gulshan-e-Iqbal, where 1636 students from different local schools of Karachi participated to vivaciously set a new record.
Nadia Hussain, Sarwat Gillani, and Momal Sheikh were also present at the event to motivate the students and, further, encourage them to adopt healthy habits.
Shahzeb Mehmood, CEO RB Pakistan, on the prestigious occasion stated;
“Every year Pakistan loses about 53,000 children to diarrhoea- a disease that is preventable through the simple act of hand washing. With over 1600 students taking part in the hand washing relay, we hope to take this message across Pakistan and instill the habit of washing hands among children. Dettol is committed to saving these lives and with the support of the Government, NGOs, Schools and each and every citizen of Pakistan; we can be successful in this endeavor”.
Seyda Subasi-Gemici, Guinness World Records adjudicator, also congratulated Dettol on organizing such a creative, and socially beneficial event.
We, the team of FHM Pakistan, wish Dettol a hearty congratulations and greetings for not only promoting hygienic practices in youth; but also setting up a record as an example for the whole world.
