A Need for Latrines

This UMCOR video, below, defines the important connection between safe human waste disposal and  health.  Poor communities of the world have an extremely high incidence of death due to preventable diseases of poverty often spread because of unsafe or no defined methods to manage waste sanitation.



Likewise, increasing numbers of UMVIM short-term teams are financing long-term latrine projects by providing financing and construction materials so that communities can construct latrines that meet local standards of sanitation.
