World Toilet Day
World Toilet Day (WTD), organized by UN Water, is an international campaign which aims to encourage individuals and groups to take action in ensuring that everyone has a safely managed toilet by 2030.
WTD is celebrated globally every November 19.
Manila Water Foundation first celebrated World Toilet Day (WTD) on November 19, 2018 at District III, Quezon City at Barangay Loyola Heights.
More than 150 parent-leaders from the community attended the WTD celebration. During the event, partners from UNICEF Philippines, Department of Health and Manila Water’s Advocacy and Research Department shared about the current sanitation status in the Philippines, the risks of open defecation, and initiatives which are being done to address this.
Information materials were distributed during the event that could help the audience share the word about the importance of sanitation in a community’s overall health.
