Sixty-six percent of Haitians living in urban settings don’t have access to improved sanitation and toilets, which has resulted in one of the most virulent cholera epidemics in the world and high rates of childhood diarrheal incidence. To address this crisis, The Links, Incorporated is working to deliver 1,000 dry toilets to Haitian residents so they may have access to toilets in their homes. In-home toilets will provide families a sense of pride as well as increased safety and security.
The Austin (TX) Chapter donates funds towards this humanitarian effort.
