Celebrating the World’s Toilet Day; 2.5billion people lack toilets today!

“What invention has saved the most lives? If you said a toilet, you’re right.”
Try to imagine yourself without toilets – no toilet in your workplace and no toilet at home…feels odd right? ThankGod for Toilets…
World Toilet Day is observed annually on 19 November. The November 19 awareness day calls attention to the fact that more than 2.5 billion people don’t have access to a toilet, which causes water pollution, disease and death, according to Water.org’s Toilet Day campaign.
The 2.5 billion people without a toilet — a number that’s smaller than the amount of people who own a cellphone — is simply an issue of inequity.
“Access to sanitation facilities around the world, more than any other service, provides a window into the vast difference between the ‘haves’ and the ‘have-nots.” Catarina de Albuquerque, UN Special Rapporteur on the human right to safe drinking water and sanitation, said in a press release.
World leaders should therefore uphold their promise to provide sanitation for all.
