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 age of five die every day from diseases caused by poor water, sanitation and hygiene. Unsafe water and poor sanitation affects people’s dignity as they have no choice but to go outside in public and also assists the spread of diseases that can be fatal for children and their families.
The Andrex® Unicef partnership, launched in September 2014, is helping to empower families and children about sanitation. Together we’re working to provide clean water and sanitation at schools in South Africa and empower communities to build safe, clean toilets in Angola.
Every time someone bought a pack of Andrex Classic Clean 16 roll or Andrex Classic Clean washlets between 18 May – 31 August 2016, 15p and 5p respectively went to help Unicef give children and families better water and sanitation in South Africa and Angola. Special packs were available in Sainsbury’s stores throughout the UK.
This year together we are committed to helping 60,000 children and families in Angola have access to a clean, safe toilet and improve water and sanitation in 300 schools in South Africa.
