The World Bank has approved a $1.5 billion loan to support an Indian government program to improve sanitation by 2019.
The Clean India Mission "aims to end open defecation, achieve open defecation free communities, and improve the management of liquid and solid waste" by providing toilets to rural areas.
"In rural India, three out of five people suffer the indignity of defecating in the open," the World Bank said in a statement Wednesday. "Girls and women have to venture out before dawn or after dark leaving them vulnerable to harassment."
The project "will result in significant health benefits for the poor and vulnerable, especially those living in rural areas,” said Ohno Ruhl, World Bank country director for India.
The funds will also be used to support India's Ministry of Drinking Water and Sanitation.
The World Bank says one in every 10 deaths in India is linked to poor sanitation.
No the issue is not that they don't have access to loo
It's that even when they do they still poo in designated shitting streets
That's the only article that keeps getting posted over and over to make that argument. The issue is that they have loo but not enough that it's just faster and more convenient to shit in designated shitting street
abloo bloo bloo
>By an unofficial count there are just five public restrooms in all of the Tenderloin, said Jennifer Friedenbach, the executive director of Coalition on Homelessness, a local advocacy group for the city's poor.
While tourists and shoppers can sneak into a hotel or store and use the bathroom many people who don't have access to a bathroom during the day "get turned away because they are poor, and they are black," Friedenbach said. "Human beings do not want to defect or urinate in public. It is not natural and they do so out of desperation because they have no where else to go."
lol WTF amerifags
hahahaha and you faggots are the one to obsess over the shitting habits of some remote village in India
lol america is a bigger shithole than I thought
What do you expect from a city trying to gentrify its poor people out? At least in LA there are public bathrooms for homeless people and druggies to do their business. San Fransisco is a literal hell unless you're rich
You can't in your right mind say that one of the most expensive cities in the world paints a clear picture of the rest of the United States
>You can't in your right mind say that one of the most expensive cities in the world paints a clear picture of the rest of the United States

>if the richest city is like this, you can imagine what the rest of the shithole is like lol
No, you really can't. You're talking out of your ass. I've been up and down the east coast and I've never seen anyone shitting in the streets. Bums will shit in back alleys or in corners of parks, but not in the street.
Try harder, Gupreet.
