Dirty work that saves lives.

In Dar es Salaam, Tanzania’s biggest city, most people depend on pit latrines. They leak and flood, are only infrequently emptied, and for users and sewage collectors alike they’re a source of potentially fatal diseases like cholera and typhoid. Water Aid is pioneering a cheap and simple pump and motorbike device that empties up to six latrines a day. And it’s a cleaner and cheaper option than traditional methods.

In Dar es Salaam, only 10% of the city is connected to mains sewage. wateraid.org/uk
