Flushing away poverty at Christ Church
The toilets at Christ Church are helping to flush away poverty! Each of our toilets are ‘twined’ with latrines in Africa – 2 in Burundi, 3 in Ethiopia and 2 in Uganda providing access to safe sanitation, clean water and hygiene education for some of the world's poorest people.
"Some 2.5 billion people don't have somewhere safe & hygienic to go to the loo. This is such an easy thing to do to make a real difference to people's health, safety and quality of life. It literally works on flushing away poverty!" UK-based charities Cord and Tearfund created ‘Toilet Twinning’, a unique way to help transform lives in poor communities across the world.
