New practitioner voice story: Safe latrines give a new life to the Bait Al-Amir community, Yemen

Hi everyone, 

We're delighted to share our first practitioner voice story by Abdulwahab Almujahed, from the Social Fund for Development, Yemen. 

Abdulwahab describes the issues facing the remote village of Bait Al-Amir - cholera, diarrhoea, malnutrition and access for people with disabilities. 

You can read Abdulwahab's story here:  https://sanitationlearninghub.org/connect-share-learn/practitioner-voices/safe-latrines-give-a-new-life-to-the-bait-al-amir-community-yemen/

If you have any comments, or found it useful, please do let us know. 

Thanks,

Alice

Re: New practitioner voice story: Safe latrines give a new life to the Bait Al-Amir community, Yemen

Hi,

Congrats on this initiative, but please give us more information on how EcoSan principles are being applied. The only thing we see is a reedbed for treating anal washwater. Is there effluent from this reedbed? Most likely, in such a dry place, the water is completely consumed by the plants and then is lost through evapotranspiration. If there is any effluent, what is done with it? Are the plants used for anything (e.g., fodder for animals)? What species of plant is it?

Best wishes,
