In Addis Ababa's poorest slums there is no running water and no sewerage system meaning that waste is left to rot in the streets. Ethiopiaid's partner FIDO aims to improve the level of sanitation and hygiene in the slums which will reduce hygiene related diseases and improve the standards of living for the thousands of people who have no choice but to live there.
This project will build a communal toilet block with a shower in the slum to help improve sanitation and hygiene. This is one of a number of projects run by FIDO in this slum which together aim to improve living standards for the whole population.
The improvements in hygiene will help to improve the health of the overall population which will help to improve their prospects in the long term.
