When simple things become a luxury – let’s build some toilets!

Flush toilets have become such a standard part of our lifes that we cannot even imagine that the majority of the world population does not have access to even modest sanitation facilities.

World Toilet Day 2008

The first time I became really aware of that fact was when I read Kishore Mahbubanis new book where he mentioned in a side note that the moment of the arrival of a flush toilet was “the date when his life entered the modern world”.

Today is World Toilet Day 2008 – so let’s help bringing some dignity to the life of thousands by helping the World Toilet Organization installing some flush toilets around the world. Just click HERE to open the donation form..
