Common water-related illnesses such as diarrhoea and typhoid were increasingly suffered by the elderly and young, making this a priority site. The only source of water came from shallow 3m deep wells dug near pit toilets. Sasake is a cattle farming settlement situated on flat terrain with no spring or creek nearby.The sanitation standard is low because the majority (89%) of the community use pit toilets. This component of the project involved constructing a low cost and maintenance-free twin septic pour flush toilet design. These new toilets are stepping stones towards improved sanitation and hygiene wellbeing for Sasake. This project was made possible with funding from the New Zealand Aid Programme via Rotary NZ Community Services Ltd.
