Toilet Twinning

2.5 billion people – that’s 40% of the world’s population – don’t have somewhere safe, clean and hygienic to go to the loo. The human impact of this scandalous stat is enormous: nearly one in five child deaths each year is due to diarrhea.  For people in poor communities, a hole in the ground is quite literally a life saver – protecting women from the risk of attack as they find somewhere private to squat, and shielding children from preventable diarrhoeal diseases.

These startling facts motivated the members of Longside Church to think about giving thanks for the refurbished facilities we have in our hall and participating in this very worthwhile initiative.
