1 toilet

Access to sanitation is something we take for granted, yet 32% of the world’s population does not have access to a hygienic place to go to the toilet. A toilet can save lives by stopping the spread of diseases like cholera, diarrhoea, dysentery, hepatitis A and typhoid. And importantly, it offers dignity and privacy.

Give the gift of dignity.

Together with the Government, UNHCR and other partners, UNICEF is responding to needs in Water and Sanitation, Health and Nutrition, Child Protection and Communication for Development.
