World Water Day 2008: Stand Up For Those Who Can't Sit Down
Amy Bennett: You are watching UNICEF television.
When was the last time you had to stand in a line this long for the bathroom?
Female: Maybe at a marathon.
Amy Bennett: And many parts of the world, a line this long would be luxury since there are no toilets to begin with.
Male: And then there is no bathroom at all. People in their house, they don’t have a bathroom. To go the bathroom, they go behind the tree or something.
Amy Bennett: Two out of five people around the world do not have a basic toilet. That’s 2.6 billion people who are toiletless.
Terese Dooley: Currently this 2.6 billion people without access and let's remember its billion, not million.
Amy Bennett: To bring awareness to this issue, dozens of ordinary -- spent their lunch hour in line for the restroom. In an event sponsored by UNICEF in -- water. Standing outside a portable toilet, the participants in the demonstration told to stand up for those who can't sit down held signs illustrating the enormity of the problem.
Imagine all you have for a latrine is a tree and all you have for toilet paper are leaves which begs the question, where would you hide.
Male: We were on a mission strip to Bihar, India and in that area, you’ll see people, you know, basically using the restroom anywhere they can go.
Amy Bennett: If all the people wouldn’t toilets would stand in line, how long would that going to be?
Female: Yeah, I would imagine many thousand times around the globe.
Amy Bennett: For impatient New Yorkers a line that long just isn't a good idea. This is Amy Bennett reporting for UNICEF Television. Unite for children.
