This project will support hygiene and sanitation needs of Typhoon Pablo survivors in Compostela Valley here in Mindanao.The urgent needs are; a. Food, b. Water, Medicines, Sleeping mats, Lighting, Sanitation and Hygiene. We would like to concentrate our support in providing low-cost, durable ecosan (dry) toilets, pour-flush toilets and hygiene kits. We excel in this type of initiative having won the Tech Awards in 2011 for technology benefiting humanity, amomg other awards.
What is the issue, problem, or challenge?
Sanitation and hygiene support is urgently needed by Typhoon Pablo survivors and we can provide this as we excel in assisting marginalized people in this aspect. We were very successful supporting Typhoon Sendong survivors last year with our ecosan toilets built in the cities of Cagayan de Oro and Iligan.
How will this project solve this problem?
This project will prevent the spread of diseases that will be caused by open defecation as a result of Typhoon Pablo's wrath. If this will happen, this will be a second wave of disaster waiting to happen.
Potential Long Term Impact
We will target 3,000 people and try to solve health and sanitation problems among them via the implementation of cheap dry toilets and then using the human waste for vegetable gardening and tree planting activities.
