Dying for the loo?

Today is the last chance to sign wateraid's petition asking Cameron to make it a priority for our development funds to fund decent 'sanitation'.  A euphemism for toilets that don't spread disease.  This isn't a left/right issue - it's possibly the most basic need and rarely discussed: doesn't make as good pictures as water pumps or food parcels, but diarrhoea is one of the biggest killers of small children in many countries.

Sign it today!

Also don't forget that DEC's appeal for Pakistan.  I'm not able to make it to the fund-raiser tonight so have donated directly instead.

UPDATE:  link corrected (thank you to Adrian) and spelling (thank you husband!)
