Access to safe sanitation is a basic human right.
Today, there are more than 70million people displaced from their homes. many of them have no access to a safe sanitation facility that safely separates human waste from human contact – people have no choice but to use inadequate communal latrines or to practice open defecation. For women and girls, finding a place to go to the toilet outside, often having to wait until the cover of darkness, can leave them vulnerable to abuse and sexual assault.
Furthermore, unsafe human sludge can play a major role in spreading water brone diseases and polluting natural resources making life even harder for the displaced populations.
