Day four the Mission of Hope: Latrines saving lives!

Latrines were the sight of the day! It is amazing to learn how a latrine is truly the cornerstone for a community’s health. On day four of the Mission of Hope we were in the community of Santa Amalia learning how a latrine is constructed and how the community rallies to be the driving force for their own transformation. The first home we visited had a partially completed latrine and we had the treat of listening to an informational demonstration from Herman the local AVODEC staff that is helping to educate Santa Amalia residents on how to construct a Latrine. The second Home we visited was a Latrine that was just starting and members of the Mission of Hope jumped right in to help dig the trench for this life saving structure.
