Case study: Toilet transformation!

"I am no longer afraid about the outbreaks of cholera, which have claimed many lives in this area." Patience, Zimbabwe.

Patience's village has a borehole that provides clean and reliable water, but the lack of sanitation in her village meant that people were often ill. There were frequent outbreaks of cholera, which can be a deadly disease.

A CAFOD-funded programme built a latrine in Patience's village, and Patience was one of the first to be trained in health and hygiene in her community. She now trains others, and is excited by the transformation the latrine has brought about. "My hygiene standards are now very high, I am no longer afraid about the outbreaks of cholera, which have claimed many lives in this area."
