Latrine for 10 people
American Refugee Committee
Natural disaster and heavy fighting can wipe out everything – including outhouses and latrines. Though it’s often not thought of as a necessity – good sanitation systems prevent more suffering. During an emergency, when thousands of people gather together, a lack of latrines can be deadly. Disease can spread fast and quickly get out of control. Latrines and sanitation systems contain that threat.
Life-saving work is rarely glamorous. But, a latrine and training in how to maintain it can protect a large family from the threat of disease. Yours will be the most interesting and intriguing gift your loved one receives. And it will save the most lives.
