Red Cross to Educate Rural Haitians on Toilet Usage
The International Federation of the Red Cross (IFRC) wants to install toilets in Haitian communities across the country. Before this can be done, social and cultural values regarding bodily functions must be addressed.
The IFRC's research shows--in some communities--usage of open fields for elimination activities are considered acceptable.
The IFRC will develop a program to re-educate rural residents on the improved quality of life they will experience by using a modern commode.
