Every child should have access to a clean and safe toilet, yet it’s hard to imagine that 2.5 billion people don’t.
Poor access to basic sanitation means they have no choice but to go outside, in public, often waiting until night time for a little privacy. This not only affects their dignity, but increases the risk of assault and escalates the spread of diseases that can be fatal to children and families.
Andrex®, now in its second consecutive year of a partnership with Unicef, supports a community-led programme in Angola to inspire communities to take pride in their own hygiene and sanitation and build their own toilets. The programme is helping to educate children and families about sanitation, empowering them with knowledge and resources to develop their own toilets. So when you choose Andrex® for your family, you're choosing to help support communities get one step closer to clean an safe toilets.
15p from every sale of Andrex® Classic Clean 16 roll and 5p from every pack of Andrex® Classic Clean Washlets sold in Sainsbury’s stores between 18th May and 31st August 2016 will help Unicef support families and communities to build clean, safe toilets in Angola, a country with one of the world’s lowest rates of proper sanitation in rural areas. This year Andrex® will raise, at least, a further £100,000 from the Unicef on pack partnership which will continue to help thousands of children in Angola.

Around 60% of people living in rural areas of Angola either do not use or do not have access to a clean and safe toilet. The money raised through this partnership is helping Unicef to work with rural communities in Angola to educate children, their families and communities about the importance of sanitation and empower them to develop their own clean and safe toilets. Our partnership is working to help 120,000 people gain better acces to sanitation.
