Please tell a story about a time when a person or organization tried to help someone or change something in your community:

Poor Sanitation

Sanitation is a major issue in our daily lives.When there is a proper sanitation,the risks of getting airborne and water-borne diseases are limited or reduced. However in some areas,sanitation is not considered as a major concern ans is not given priority. In mathare slums,there are burst sewers and the sewage just flows into residential areas.There is also no proper management of the sewage system which is also not properly designated. There is great risk of the residents being affected by waterborne diseases like cholera because there are no even proper toilets or latrines for use There have been several trials and attempts by the residents to push the government through the local authorities to ensure that there is proper r management for sewers but this has not happened.Therefore there is need for other stake holders or interested parties t come in and assis solve the problem.
