AMOUNT RAISED TO DATE – $73,620, INCLUDING MATCHING BY THE GLOBAL SANITATION FUND
More than 2.2 million children die every year – that’s four every minute – as a result of diarrhea caused by poor sanitation and hygiene.
Every year Plan Canada helps communities build 2,000 school latrines and in the last three years has helped families and communities build an average 100,000 toilets per year, benefiting several million people.
We are very proud to be sponsoring this project through events that will be held in the coming years. The great thing is that the Global Sanitation Fund is matching funds raised 5:1 (until 2016, it was 8:1). Donations can be made securely online at http://bit.ly/1twIioL.
