On World Toilet Day, nature called and left us a message; ‘leave no one behind’! According to the United Nations (UN), more people have mobile phones than toilets. This goes against the recognition of the human right to water and sanitation by the UN in 2010.

Question: What do 2,4 billion people have in common?

Answer: They don't have access to a safe toilet.
