Helping to flush away poverty !

Wetherby District Lions have been working with partners to help make Wetherby a ‘toilet twinned’ town.

Good sanitation and clean drinking water are fundamental to communities, yet 1 in 4 people worldwide don’t have somewhere safe, private or hygienic to go to the toilet. In the world's poorest countries, clean water, toilets and hygiene kits will transform lives today.

By donating £60 to twin your toilet, you help fund a project in a poor community that will enable families to build a basic toilet, have access to clean water and learn about hygiene – a vital combination that saves lives.

When you twin, you will receive a certificate to hang in your loo – showing a photograph of your overseas toilet twin and GPS coordinates so you can look up your twin’s location on Google Maps!

Wetherby District Lions supported by sponsors and partners have helped to twin 10 toilets in Mozambique; Malawi; Zambia; Uganda; South Sudan and Cote D’Ivoire.

If you wish to help financially then you can donate here Thank you.
