Toilet Twinning at Church House
Donate to Toilet Twinning with Church House to help fund a project in a poor community.
We are refurbishing all of the toilets at Church House and part of this work is to twin every toilet that we have with a toilet in an area of the world in need via the charity Toilet Twinning.
By donating money to twin toilets at Church House, you help fund a project in a poor community that will enable families to build a basic toilet, have access to clean water, and learn about hygiene – a vital combination that saves lives.
Here are some stats which clearly show why toilets matter:
- 1.7 billion people don’t have somewhere safe and hygienic to go to the toilet. (WHO/Unicef)
- The lack of a loo makes women and girls a target for sexual attack as they go to the toilet in the open, late at night.
- Every day, over 700 children under five die from diarrhoea linked to unsafe water, sanitation and poor hygiene.
- Today, 1 in 4 people around the world lack safe drinking water. (WHO/UNICEF 2021)
- Children worldwide miss 443 million school days each year because of dirty water and poor sanitation. (UN)
- Every year, women and girls spend 97 billion hours finding a place to go. (World Bank)
- World Toilet Day is on 19 November: it’s a UN-designated day to push for action for the 1.7 billion people on the planet who still don’t have a life-saving toilet.
Stephanie Maurel, the CEO of Church House Westminster, commented:
“Having access to a proper toilet and being able to get clean water is something that most of us are able to take for granted. At the heart of how we work at Church House, as well as through our current refurbishment, is caring for our planet and sustaining life on the earth, raising funds to toilet twin our facilities at Church House is a small thing to do that has such an impact on people in the poorest nations and one we all feel strongly about.”
