Today is World Toilet Day, designated by the United Nations to raise awareness of the 2.4 billion people who lack access to improved sanitation.

In the communities where we work, when necessary, improving the sanitation in homes and villages is a priority. The health and safety of family members is an integral part in helping them move from poverty into lives of prosperity and self-reliance.
