Let’s forget our own troubles for a bit and remember that Thursday 19th November 2020 is World Toilet Day!
Not the most romantic of subjects but Belle Grove is proud to support Toilet Twinning, an organisation that helps fund projects in communities less fortunate than ours. The funds enable families to build a basic toilet, have access to clean water and to learn more about hygiene and hand washing – all a vital combination that saves lives.
Without proper toilets and clean water, people are trapped in a vicious cycle of sanitation-related diseases, inability to earn a consistent living, missing school. In fact, if there are no toilets or changing rooms, girls often drop out of school altogether when they start their periods. Moreover women and girls risk being attacked as they go to the toilet in the open,
Dignity is restored when the whole family can use a private, hygienic toilet at their home and no longer have to squat in the bush.
We’ve twinned our loos here at Belle Grove (and – an idea for Christmas perhaps?! – even given twinned toilets as presents!) but twin your own toilet today! Visit – https://www.toilettwinning.org/twin-your-toilet/ for more information.
