DONATE A PIT TOILET
Open defecation continues to be an urgent problem and a critical health issue.
For most people living in the remote villages of Papua New Guinea they do not have a place to go to the toilet. Poor sanitation conditions lead to cholera, diarrhoea and sickness for the villagers.
YOUR DONATION of $40 CAN SAVE A LIFE.
Just a mere $40 will buy cement and a shovel which will enable a family to build a simple pit toilet for their home.
A pit latrine generally consists of three major parts: a hole in the ground, a slab or floor with a small hole, and a shelter. The shelter is often known as an outhouse. The pit is typically at least 3 meters (10 feet) deep and 1 m (3.2 feet) across.
STOP CHILDREN FROM BEING VERY SICK OR EVEN DYING
Over 900 children in PNG die every year from diarrhea caused by poor sanitation, making it a leading cause of death among children under the age of five.
Ecoflow Wastewater in Brisbane and now Lae are working with HEAPS in trialing the suitability of villagers constructing and managing compost toilets. We currently have one type of household toilet placed in Wewak and another outdoor community style in Lambutina village Sio.
