Clean toilet is one of the things I maintain at home. It is because I want to keep our toilet germ-free to prevent my family from being sick, especially my children. This is why I join the pledge in the advocacy of Domex’s One Million Clean Toilets Movement of raising awareness for toilet appreciation and sanitation. Please watch the “Fiesta” video and I am sure that you will join the pledge too.
The Domex Fiesta video showshow the underprivileged Filipinos welcome the “arrival” of clean toilet facilities in their communities. The “Fiesta” video contributes to the efforts of Domex’s One Million Clean Toilets Movement. Each unique view translates into a pledge for the advocacy campaign which collects pledges from households to conscientiously maintain their own hygienic bathrooms. For every pledge received, Domex will donate P5 to UNICEF’s sanitation program, towards improving access to basic sanitation in deprived areas around the world, including the Philippines.
“By watching the ‘Fiesta’ video and asking our friends to watch it, we are not only raising awareness for toilet appreciation and sanitation, more importantly, we are helping less privileged communities gain access to clean toilet facilities,” said Benjie Yap, Unilever Foods and Home Care Vice President.
According to the Department of Health, of the estimated 3,420 diarrhea-related deaths among Filipino children under 5 every year, around 2,000 could have been prevented by access to safe water, improved toilet sanitation and personal hygiene. I hate seeing children suffering from diarrhea and worst that it could lead to death. That is why as parents, we should keep our toilet clean and it should begin at home. We should also train our kids on how to use the toilet properly.
This video is truly a good awareness to all of us to keep our toilets clean and germ-free. I hope that more parents could watch this video.
