This figure is according to a survey conducted by the World Health Organization {WHO}. Children around the world miss this much number of school days each year, that is equivalent to all grade school and high school classrooms in the Philippines being empty for one month! And the culprit for these missed school days you ask? Yes, diseases caused by poor sanitation and hygiene practices, including using unsanitary toilets. It it extremely unfortunate that these sanitation-related concerns get in the way of children’s learning and ultimately in improving the quality of their lives. I for one would never want illnesses to get in the way of the little man’s learning or in my family’s precious bonding time.

There are a number of illnesses we can acquire from toilet sanitation, including diarrhoeal disease and parasitic worm infections that can lead to nutritional deficiencies, physical and mental stunting, and even death. And it is sad to know that millions of children in rural communities and urban households nationwide are exposed to these health problems everyday by using dirty toilets populated by disease-carrying germs.

So what to do to help solve global sanitation problem?

The simple act of proper toilet sanitation goes a long way in protecting our children and families from disease-causing germs. And, yes, more often than not, ordinary laundry bleach is not enough to kill all toilet germs and sanitize our toilets at home. A clean-looking toilet may just be reeking with germs and bacteria and we need a germ-kill expert with proven efficacy in eliminating bacteria, that is why it is a wise and practical move to sanitize our toilets with Domex.

About 300 students of Sauyo Elementary School in the 6th District of Quezon City actively participate as Coca-Cola Philippines launch Minute Maid Nurisha – a great tasting, orange flavoured juice drink that helps sustainably address Iron Deficiency Anemia (IDA) and other micronutirent deficiencies that are often prevalent in Filipino school-aged children.

Since 2005, Coca-Cola Philippines has worked with the Food and Nutrition Research Institute (FNRI) of the Department of Science and Technology to develop a beverage that will help alleviate Iron Deficiency Anemia (IDA) through the NutriJuice Program. The efficacy study conducted in 2006 has yielded very positive results among children suffering from IDA.
