Builidng clean toilets for germ-free communities
Ever since, I am very, very particular to a very clean toilet. Family members would always want me to be the first to use our toilet because after that, it is already free from dirt, smooth tiles and smell fresh. I cannot use it unless I have disinfect every single corner.
Some practical tips in cleaning a toilet which I also got from Domex Facebook Page:
But did you know that 7 million Filipinos don’t have access to clean toilets? This would cause sickness like diarrhea for not sanitized toilet which led to sometimes death.
Sharing to you this video entitled “Fiesta” – a scene where people rushing to the streets, drawn to the sound of a marching band.
Everyone is smiling, eager to see the “star” of the celebration. But instead of showing the face of a movie celebrity, a beauty queen or a politician, the video reveals an unlikely, yet welcome sight—a new, clean toilet facility.
This only shows how underprivileged Filipinos welcome the “arrival” of clean toilet facilities in their communities.
With this move, the “Fiesta” video contributes to the efforts of Domex’s One Million Clean Toilets Movement.
Each unique view translates into a pledge for the advocacy campaign which collects pledges from households to conscientiously maintain their own hygienic bathrooms.
For every pledge received, Domex will donate P5 to UNICEF’s sanitation program, towards improving access to basic sanitation in deprived areas around the world, including the Philippines.
“By watching the ‘Fiesta’ video and asking our friends to watch it, we are not only raising awareness for toilet appreciation and sanitation, more importantly, we are helping less privileged communities gain access to clean toilet facilities,” said Benjie Yap, Unilever Foods and Home Care Vice President.
According to the Department of Health, of the estimated 3,420 diarrhea-related deaths among Filipino children under 5 every year, around 2,000 could have been prevented by access to safe water, improved toilet sanitation and personal hygiene.
Definitely, I did click the video supporting the said advocacy if it means a clean toilet and most importantly saving lives. The welcome construction of new toilet facilities and the repair of dilapidated ones would be a disease prevention especially for children.
