Man converts old metal drum into a portable wash basin at Bus Stops

With the COVID-19 global scare, everyone is just as careful as everyone else.

From hoarding alcohol and hand sanitizers to panic buying groceries, it is without a doubt that this pandemic has struck us all in a bad way. Aside from the usual alcohol and hand sanitizers, we are all aware of how hand-washing could be of great help to each of us. Though alcohol and hand sanitizers come in handy, it is still advisable and economical to wash our hands with soap and water.

But, what if we are outdoors? What if we have no access to a sink?

Fret not because a man from Africa has been applauded by netizens for coming up with a brilliant idea to help his neighbors in his own simple ways.

The old man, believed to be from Mzansi, used an old metal drum and converted it into a smart, clean, and portable wash basin.

Like other netizens, we also believe that converting an old metal drum into clean wash basins could help in our combat against COVID-19.

We could only hope that everyone could take the initiative and pick up an inspiration or two from this old man that a trash could be our treasure too. May we be reminded to always wash our hands with soap and water at all times.
