If you are looking for an unusual gift to give, but something that is also going to do some good, then why not give a toilet through Christian Aid's Present Aid scheme?

In Nicaragua, a massive 80 per cent of the population live on less than £1.10 per day. Cholera and malaria are rife, particularly in shanty towns like El Tambor. But Christian Aid partner Community Movement of Matagalpa (MCM) is fighting back with latrines.

This helps avoid many illnesses, such as diarrhoea and parasites, which particularly affect children. Gifts like these may not be the most glamorous, but they are certainly unusual, and they go a long way to controlling disease and saving lives.

You can give a toilet quickly and easily online at Christian Aid's Present Aid site. You just choose the gift, and a card is sent to the person on whose behalf the gift is being made.
