Las Lomas Latrines

Project Impact: 100 families provided with better sanitation

We recently visited this recently completed project in Las Lomas, Guatemala and had the pleasure of meeting several families who were beneficiaries. This project specifically works to improve sanitation by building 100 latrines for families in Las Lomas, where the poor handling of the human waste is causing human illnesses and environmental degradation.
