United Nations World Toilet Day
When some people in a community do not have safe toilets, everyone’s health is threatened. Poor sanitation contaminates drinking-water sources, rivers, beaches and food crops, spreading deadly diseases among the wider population.
2,7 million people die every year from lack of sanitation.
