New latrine block well on its way

A brand new latrine block is being constructed in the boarders’ compound.

Until now, there’s only been one ‘long drop’, so having a new latrine block will make life much easier, more pleasant and hygienic for everyone.

What a job though. The pictures show the men working at the bottom of the excavation – they’re down about 8m at the moment, and hope to go down a lot further, to around 20m…an incredibly dangeraous job, but it does mean that the latrines will last a long time.
