Not only do toilets improve hygiene, they also provide safety, dignity and better health outcomes for everyone. Whether a school toilet block or a household latrine, this gift helps lead to healthier, empowered communities.

How your gift helps

Choosing this gift means you’re contributing to long-term development projects around water and sanitation run by Tearfund’s partners.

In remote villages in northern Laos, Tearfund’s Christian partner World Renew Laos supports families, who are in the most vulnerable situations, to construct a household latrine using local resources, like the one pictured.

For some of the older community members, these latrines have meant that for the first time in their lives, they don’t need to practise open defecation. Not only do toilets reduce disease and improve hygiene, they also make the community a safer place and provide dignity and better health outcomes for everyone.
