Why safe toilets matter
It’s hard to believe that one in three people don’t have a clean safe toilet to use and millions of children still don’t have clean water to drink.
More than 800 children under the age of five die every day from diseases caused by poor water, sanitation and hygiene. Unsafe water and poor sanitation affects people’s dignity – they have no choice but to go outside in public. It also assists the spread of diseases that can be fatal for children and their families.
