Why we should care about the use of toilets

While we might take toilets for granted, billions in the world don’t. Toilet or washroom and all related – loosely called sanitation – plays a vital role in our lives: not only in our daily lives but also for our sustainable development.
Maintain basic hygiene is important for not only human health but also good for environmental development.

Facility for safe human disposal and feces includes maintaining hygiene with the help of doing proper disposal of garbage and wastewater disposal too.
The main agenda of good sanitation is to provide a healthy living environment to all, this also helps in protecting natural resources, provides security, safety, and dignity for people when they defecate.

Through this, we are going to talk facts and figure about toilets and sanitation management.
Today, about one-third of the world’s population lack access to improved sanitation, and 1 billion people still practice open defecation

Open defecation is a leading cause of diarrheal death, says the WHO. The diarrhea death toll stands at around 6,000 a day, mostly of young children.

In India, there are many villages, towns, and rural areas where people lack access to improved sanitation and so they practice open defecation, more than any other region in the world.

Because of zero healthy sanitation practice, half of the malnutrition cases are linked to chronic diarrhea caused by lack of clean water, decent sanitation, and good hygiene, including handwashing with soap.

It is important to spread washroom and sanitization awareness among people because Just 1 gram of feces can contain 10 million viruses, 1 million bacteria, 1,000 parasite cysts, and 100 parasite eggs.

To prevent this issue one of the basic steps is to make people learn that hand-washing with soap after using the toilet is one of the most effective and inexpensive ways to prevent diarrheal diseases and pneumonia.

We must raise awareness and inspire action to tackle the sanitation crisis and kill this issue from the root. And to do this Helping Brother trust is talking about all possible actions by doing numerous washroom and hygiene awareness campaigns in various parts of rural and urban areas.
