But the fire is so delightful,

A beautifully bright reminder of the importance of sanitry right now! Especially while travelling, when it's this easy to protect those around you, it's definitely worth your time. Wash your hands, wear a mask, be safe! #hostels4wateraid #artofchange. 

'Katerina Croydon Veleslavov from London, UK, created 'Clean Hands Save Lives' for WaterAid's Art of Change campaign. Katerina Croydon said: I hope that the repeating imagery of hands and taps reinforces the need to wash our hands multiple times a day whilst we continue to battle COVID-19 across the globe!"
