The greatest concern for mother of four, Daw Than, is that her children are healthy and safe.
On World Toilet Day last week, several events were held in locations around Bangladesh where we are currently running our Water and Sanitation Project.
At Habitat, our work is not only about empowering individuals, but entire communities.
This Sunday marks the 22nd annual World Water Day. It’s a timely reminder and an opportunity to raise awareness of the importance of access to water, sanitation and hygiene and the effects this has not only on public health, but poverty reduction and economic development.
Daw, a housewife and her husband U San, a casual labourer live in Phar Pain, Mon State with their three children. U San works in an orchard garden and earns 2500-3000 Kyats each day and Daw takes care of the children and household.
