Yet another child, this time 5 years old, has died in a school Pit Toilet in South Africa this week, the second such occurrence in about a year. The is simply unacceptable, and the Department of Education is reportedly "sending deepest sympathies" and "looking into the budget" for new toilets, but that's what they said last time round.
How many children have to suffer this completely undignified and totally preventable way before action is taken to eliminate Pit Toilets from our schools?
Please share far and wide, and let's try to raise enough money to eliminate Pit Toilets from all South African schools once and for all!!
We owe it to the innocent children ... to the future of our beautiful country!!
