Action on World Toilet Day
Happy World Toilet Day to everyone!
It's a day organised by the World Toilet Organisation - and aims to bring attention to the 2.5 billion people around the world without access to a safe and sanitary toilet. And the 4000 children dying as a result.
Today has seen activism from End Water Poverty members all over the world - from flash squats in Singapore, to a 'makeunder' of men's loos in London, to inspiring lobbying done in India towards politicians.
We've also had a letter published in the Guardian from doctors across Europe, outlining that good sanitation is the key to child health.
End Water Poverty is also joining in with a 'twitter petition' - do go along to the website and get involved by signing and promoting to your followers. If you don't have twitter then you can sign a petition on the main website.
Hope you can join in and make a difference!
