We all know the citizens have hardly access to sufficient and hygienic public toilets, and it has been a long time trend that people use streets, corners and open areas as a place of latrine. Such practices have obviously affect health, mindset and environmental sanitation. Main victims have been children, women, homeless people and people, who do business on the street, their customers and those who have duties on the street as well as pedestrians. In addition, regardless of the unbearable effects on health, social, economy and development, the practice grows to be a norm.
Considering these challenges and unhealthy practices and the World Toilet Day, November 19, we all, who signed below, kindly and strongly request our city administration to fulfill sanitation facilities, facilitate and support ways, mechanisms and tools to citizens and residences of the city, particularly a clean access to public toilets. Hence, the number of people without access to sanitation will reduce and sustainable sanitation solutions will be developed.
With this request, we are ready to create the awareness and support our fellows to be aware of latrines and make use of proper uses.
We express our gratitude in advance for accepting the request, confirmatory measures and working together towards the same goal.
