Lack of toilet access around the world

Today, research rom international charity WaterAid shows that 650 million people around the world have no access to clean water, and 2.3 billion people don't have access to a private bathroom!!!!

Here are some excerpts:

 - South Sudan is the worst place in the world to find a toilet. 93% of the population do not have access to a household toilet.

- All of the 10 worst places are in Africa.

- More than 774 million people in India do not have access to a private toilet.

- It is estimated that for every $1 spent on toilets, the economy is boosted by at least $3.

- In the developed world, Russia has the worst access to toilets. 39 million people in Russia don't have access to a safe private toilet.

- Even in the United States, there are 36,100 people without access to a toilet.

Just something to think about and be thankful about next time you're sitting on your clean, warm, safe toilet in your home bathroom.

Take care!
