Tragedies in


Few people in developed countries have ever been in a situation where the lack of portable sanitation has created a life threatening environment. However, we live in a world where 40% of the population still relieve themselves on the ground because modern plumbing and portable sanitation is limited or non-existent.

The detrimental impact of untreated and uncollected human waste to our overall health, safety, and environment can be measured in human lives. Tragically, over 2 million people, mostly children, die annually due to preventable diarrheal diseases.
