End Water Poverty, WSSCC and the Freshwater Action Network would like to say: Well Done!
Thank you to all the individuals, groups, organizations, governments, regions and countries who participated in World's Longest Toilet Queue 2010. This global event brought people together to set a Guinness World record and bring the World's attention to the water and sanitation crisis which affects 2.5 billion people.
Around 100,000 people in 80 different countries took part including:
- 30,000 people taking action across Nepal
- 30,000 children queuing in Nigeria
- joining the queue in Ouagadougou, Burkino Faso
- 1,500 in one Queue in Bhopal, India
Marginalised groups directly affected by this crisis stood up and took action to get their politicians to solve it. The World's Longest Toilet Queue took place a month before the High-Level meeting on water and sanitation in Washington DC on 23rd April 2010.
