Andrex® and WaterAid have worked together to ensure that Toilets Changed Lives on World Toilet Day this year.

From November 16th-19th at London’s BoxPark in Shoreditch, the stark reality faced by 2.3 billion people around the world was bought to London’s doorstep. Members of the public stepped into a striking scene, reminiscent of many unplanned urban settlements around the world, and read first-hand accounts from people who don’t have a safe, clean toilet of their own.

A staggering 1 in 3 people do not have a safe, clean toilet of their own.

Without clean water, decent toilets and good hygiene, people can’t stay healthy. Children are frequently sick and miss school. And parents are too ill, or busy caring for their families, to work.

Together with WaterAid, the Toilets Change Lives initiative has already helped transform thousands of lives by constructing new, or renovating existing, public toilets in Bangladesh. With your support, Andrex and WaterAid can help transform the lives of thousands more people by improving public sanitation facilities in Bangladesh.
