In recognition of World Toilet Day, KC Water employees (our Chapter’s Mentor’s) discuss the volunteer work they’ve done to improve sanitation in developing countries in this video.
In Kansas City, most people probably take for granted how the toilet works, or even that they access to a toilet. But, 2.5 billion people in the world don’t have access to adequate sanitation, and 315,000 children die every year from illnesses related to poor sanitation and unsafe water. That’s the reason for World Toilet Day. It’s an international effort to ensure everyone has access to toilets by the year 2030.
