World Toilet Day highlights sanitation crisis21st of November 2011
Last Saturday (November 19) was the tenth World Toilet Day (WTD). This was designated by the World Toilet Organisation as the day we all think about the plight of the 2.6 billion people worldwide who face every day without access to proper, clean sanitation.
The event was celebrated in almost 20 countries with over 50 events being hosted by water and sanitation advocates.
WTD is said to be gaining momentum every year and the World Toilet Organisation is keen for it to become 'the' event that represents the sanitation crisis globally.
