Give a ‘Crap’ This World Toilet Day

19 November 2018 11:52

WaterAid NI supporters mark World Toilet Day on 19th November and squat in solidarity with the 4.5 billion people around the world live without a safe toilet.

Christine McAllister, WaterAid Secretary for NI comments, World Toilet Day is about inspiring action to tackle the global sanitation crisis and raise awareness of the fact that billions of people don’t have somewhere safe to go to the toilet.

“Diarrhoea caused by dirty water and poor toilets kills a child under 5 every 2 minutes; but thanks to your incredible support, WaterAid has already reached millions of people in some of the toughest places in the world.”

NI Water is proud to support the work of the international charity WaterAid, which works with some of the world’s poorest communities to provide clean, safe drinking water and sanitation facilities.  Since 1981 WaterAid has reached 25.8 million people with clean water and 25.1 million with decent toilets.*

You can get involved too and while you ‘spend a penny’, why not donate a £1 (or more) to WaterAid to help make the dream of sanitation and hygiene for all a reality.
