Village finally gets toilets!

new latrines bouchi3A lot has been happening in the world of WASH (Water and Sanitation and Hygiene) in the last month.  One of the projects we are pleased to announce is the completion of a latrine built in Bouchi, a small neighbouring village to Bod Me Limbe.  Having previously no toileting facilities and very poor access to portable water, the community of Bouchi decided a communal latrine was of highest priority.  One villager said today "it is very important to us to have a place to go to the toilet.  It will make the village cleaner so less people will get sick."

The clinic's Community Health Workers will be commencing a tailored education program for the people of Bouchi to ensure everyone knows how to use the latrines, and to promote general and hand hygiene.  The lady and gentleman pictured in front of the latrine are responsible for ensuring it is well looked after.  

Haiti Village Health and the community of Bouchi would like to thank the Freemasons of Bermuda who made this project possible.

THESE FACILITIES COST $2,000. PLEASE HELP US TO BUILD MORE - PLEASE CLICK THE BLUE DONATE BUTTON ON THIS PAGE.  THANK YOU!
