A campaign was launched by Beaconhouse Schools and Rose Petal to encourage the use of tissue papers for prevention of diseases among children. The campaign aims to encourage children to carry tissue papers or wipes at all times to improve their overall hygiene. An event in this regard was organised at Beaconhouse Defence Campus. Tabraiz Bokhari, head of corporate communications, told the gathering that 80% of the infectious diseases were caused by hands, and if one doesn’t properly dry their hands after washing, they will end up gathering more germs. Mr Shaheen Sadiq, the business head of packages, said the usage of towels and hand dryers is not as efficient and hygienic as compared to usage of tissue to dry hands.
