UNICEF gets backlash from post about Ghana on Twitter

The United Nations Children's Emergency Fund (UNICEF) has come under some criticism following its recent revelation of water security among children in Ghana.

In what looked like a generalized sampling of the state of water supply to children, UNICEF posted a picture of two children on Twitter,  stating "In Ghana, children wash their hands outside their family's self-constructed latrines".

The description was interpreted to mean that  was the norm in every household in Ghana by some Ghanaians on Twitter.
