Latrines in camps are a basic but essential facility
Unable to return home due to floodwater still covering vast areas of land, around 3,100 families (about 22,000 people) were living in the Shabaz and Sabzi Mandi camps in Hyderabad. Here Oxfam worked with local partners SPO (Strengthening Participatory Organization) and BHS (Bhandar Sangat), with support from the UK Department for International Development, to provide water, sanitation and hygiene promotion, including building latrines. The latrines were basic but welcomed as the following feedback from the community shows.
In the first year of our response, we have reached over 2.4 million people with humanitarian aid in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, Punjab, Sindh and Azad Jammu Kashmir. Please donate to help our ongoing response.
