Challenge

Super Typhoon Odette destroyed lives and livelihoods and laid waste many communities in the Visayas and Mindanao. The urgent need which is open of low priority by humanitarian actors is the provision of low-cost sanitation for the poorest of the poor. Our project in installing low-cost latrines for families as well as providing water filters and the repair of gravity-fed water system.

Solution

The toilet will be equipped with hygiene kits and water supply. The project will help control open defecation in the area because open defecation will be one of the problems that may spawn the spread of water-borne diseases, thereby multiplying disaster if this is not solved. Aside from toilets we will provide water filters in order to provide safe drinking water.

Long-Term Impact

We aim to provide safe sanitation and prevent the spread of water-borne diseases in the devastated areas as a result of Super Typhoon Odette. This is a very urgent need that is often overlooked and not responded to.
