The UN General Assembly has passed a resolution on 17th July,2013 as proposed by the Government of Singapore on "Sanitation for All" and the establishment of November 19th as World Toilet Day.

The General Assembly stated - "The amusement and laughter likely to follow the designation of 19th November as "World Toilet Day" would all be worthwhile, if people's attention was drawn to the fact that 2.5 billion people lacked proper sanitation and 1.1 billion were forced to defecate in the open".

In a statement issued immediately following the Assembly session, UN Deputy Secretary-General Jan Eliasson said that the new annual observance would "go a long way toward raising awareness about the need for all human beings to have access to sanitation".

It is GREAT to endorse such a Resoulution. Now, let us implement this in a prioritised manner— " Sanitation For All".

Lets join hand together for better WASH condition in the world.
