Lucky to have a loo

Our Student Union Water Aid Society celebrated World Toilet Day by raising awareness on how lucky we are to have access to a loo! The team held an engaging stall that gave staff and students information on the importance of sanitation around the world. Toilets help people have better health, dignity and safety and yet 2.3 billion around the globe do not have a decent toilet. A lack of a decent toilet and clean water causes diarrhoeal diseases that claim the lives of almost 800 children every day – one every two minutes. The team offered fun face paints to passers-by, gave out free goodies, collected donations for the charity and even dressed up like a toilet for the day, to mark the occasion.
