Another World Toilet Day sans public toilets

Hammad Shah, a fourth-grade student, doesn’t remember his school ever having functional toilets. Located in the low-income local of Ibrahim Hyderi, the toilets at the Government Boys School, Rehri, have always been seen as a replacement for a storeroom, he told The Express Tribune a day before World Toilet Day, observed every year on November 19.
