SI Dundee members braved the wet weather of the city square to raise awareness of the Toilet Twinning Project among Dundee Christmas shoppers.
What is toilet twinning?
Over 2.4 billion people worldwide do not have access to a safe clean loo. By twinning your toilet you can help those who live in poverty have access to a safe toilet. For only £60 a toilet can be built in third world communities.
Some points to note:
- 1 billion people do not have access to any loo at all and defecate openly in fields and gutters.
- Poor sanitation is responsible for the deaths on many people – especially women and kids
- Almost half a million children under five years die every year because they have no access to clean loos or clean water.

Well done to all who took part.
