Making Latrines Available in Rural Haiti

Since the cholera outbreak in the fall of 2010, the Lambi Fund of Haiti has been hard at work on educating communities in rural Haiti on how to prevent the spread of cholera.  Teaching clean cooking techniques, healthy hand-washing and sanitation habits have been at the cornerstone of decreasing the spread of infection.  In addition to this training component, Lambi Fund has partnered with community organizations to build latrines.  Out of these partnerships, latrines have been built in grain mills throughout the country.  Recent successes have been the construction and opening of latrines at EIGHT community grain mills within the last few months.  

Making latrines available at these grain mills has been a huge success and is a significant step towards greater access to sanitation.  These grain mills are essentially community centers for the organizations we work with.  The grain mills not only allow citizens to affordably mill their grains, but the mills become impromptu centers of commerce where locals buy and sell goods.  Given this reality, providing mills with latrines for members and patrons to use is a major step towards improving community health and protecting the environment.

Mesi ampil for your support in making the opening of these latrines a possibility.  Lambi Fund’s initiative to build latrines at project sights is still very much in its infancy and your support in helping make this a reality is much appreciated.
