Due to the densely population of the people in the slums this makes housing the most important aspect of our day to day life.This has led to the roitoring of lots lots of houses in the slum.Thus forgetting important aspects as toilets thus making sanitation a huge problem in the slums at large.This has led to the improper waste disposal in the slums that has led to the outbreak of diseases thus leading to the loss of life of people in the slums. Due to this the US Embassy launched a programme to help in the suiting of toilets in the slums.This has help since now people have places to dispose of their waste thus preventing the infection and spread of waterborne diseases.
