Most people in Ndegeya have no latrines. The consequences of these bad sanitary conditions are stench, flies and diseases like cholera, diarrhea and dysentery. After consulting the village elders the Joanne Foundation decided to build a number of latrinebuildings. In the meantime 19 latrines have been built.
The positive effects of building latrines, waterpumps and watertanks are noticeable; the number of illnesses related to polluted water and bad sanitary conditions are significantly less.
