World Toilet Day - Lacking a loo in Bhojpur

Can you imagine not having a toilet at all? Something that many of us take for granted, would be blessing for millions of people! Meet some brave souls in northern India who have shared their story.

2.4 billion people do not have adequate sanitation. 1 billion people still defecate in the open. Poor sanitation increases the risk of disease and malnutrition, especially for women and children. Women and girls risk rape and abuse, because they have no toilet that offers privacy. (United Nations)
