Construction of showers and latrines to curb the spread of diseases

Once they have showers fed by clean, filtered water, the local populations realise the benefits. The evidence is clear to see: a striking reduction in the number of cases of skin diseases. 

At the moment, only two houses in ten have a toilet. This is obviously far too few, but most families are very poor and can barely afford to feed themselves. 

To build these latrines, the association called on local manpower from the remote villages of Kon Tum Ko Nam. Providing work and giving the local populations responsibility means that the bonds can be strengthened, but above all it helps to maintain our various missions in the long term.
