2.5 billion people – that's 40% of the world's population – don’t have somewhere safe, clean and hygienic to go to the loo. The human impact of this scandalous stat is enormous: nearly one in five child deaths each year is due to diarrhea. The good news is you can help change this by twinning your toilet!
For people in poor communities, a hole in the ground is quite literally a life saver – protecting women from the risk of attack as they find somewhere private to squat, and shielding children from preventable diarrhoeal diseases. By twinning a toilet you'll be helping those who most need it access safe sanitation, clean water and hygiene education.
"I twinned my toilet because it's a fun and simple way to tackle the scandalous lack of decent loos and basic sanitation all over the world. Three children under the age of 5 die every minute because of poor sanitation and dirty water. So come on, let's help change the world one toilet at a time. Twin your toilet today and make a wee difference." Tamsin Greig. Read about other loominaries who are helping flush away poverty.
