Sanitation is among the most basic human needs and it is a prerequisite to human health. As noted in a popular quote “Sanitation has done more to increase human life span than any kind of drug or surgery”.
Are you aware that:
1. An estimated 2.3 billion people still do not have basic sanitation facilities such as toilets or latrines.
2. An estimated 892 million still defecate in the open, for example in street gutters or into open water bodies.
3. Inadequate sanitation accounts for an estimated 280, 000 diarrhoea deaths.
4. Poor sanitation is significantly linked with transmission of diseases such as cholera, diarrhoea, dysentery, hepatitis A, typhoid and polio.
As Nelson Mandela rightfully puts it “health cannot be a question of income; it is a fundamental human right”.
We at World Humanitarian Foundation recognizes this fact and as such we are committed to improving sanitation in three key areas in resource poor communities around the globe.
We are committed to ensuring:
1. Clean streets
2. Clean rivers
3. Proper defecation systems through provision of public toilets
Your Donations and help will assist us in mobilizing resources and putting systems in place to ensure that we meet our goal of achieving “improved sanitation conditions in 75% of deprived communities by 2025”.
