Sesame Workshop is premiering new animated public service announcements today to help families across Bangladesh stay physically and emotionally healthy as the coronavirus pandemic continues. The videos, which will be available in 19 languages around the world and will air on Bangladeshi TV Channels and social media platforms. 

The videos include Elmo’s new Washy Wash song, as well as Sisimpur Muppets learning how to sneeze properly and how caring for yourself means caring for each other. 

Washy Wash with Elmo

Families can sing along with Elmo as he washes his hands for 20 seconds—washing the germs away and helping everyone stay healthy.

Learning how to sneeze and cough safely with Grover

Grover helps children remember that when they feel a tickle in their noses or throats, they should remember to sneeze or cough into their upper sleeve or elbow—that helps keep the germs off their hands and away from other people. It’s as easy as 1, 2, 3!

Time to Wash Your Hands!

Sesame Muppets demonstrate different situations where children and families should wash hands—after coughs and sneezes, before eating, after playing, after using the bathroom, and more.

Caring for Myself, Caring for Others

Sesame Muppets help children understand that when you take good care of yourself, you’re taking good care of others, too.

Sisimpur is there for children and families whether it’s a sunny day or a stormy one, and unfortunately many families in Bangladesh are facing unprecedented challenges right now,” said Mohammad Shah Alam, Executive Director of Sesame Workshop Bangladesh.“Sisimpur is committed to supporting families throughout this crisis—equipping them with the tools they need to get through this together and look to the future with hope and optimism.”

With many children currently out of school, Sisimpur provides early learning to children at home, airing on BTV and Duronto TV.
