[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]About 4.5 billion people do not have safe sanitation globally.

Almost half population of the world defecate in open fields, water sources, forests or other open spaces. Not only is this practice a major source of disease, but it also compromises the safety of women and girls. In order to maintain some measure of privacy, they often wait until dark to relieve themselves, which makes them more vulnerable to kidnapping, assault and wild animal attacks.

Formed

40 WASH Village Committees

Nearly 333 villages have been triggered for

behavior change towards open-defecation

With more than 150 adult females in my village Huri Belo, district Sanghar, we had no access to clean, safe and private space in which we could manage our sanitary products; however, Shifa Foundation promoted boldly– the role of good Menstrual Hygiene Management among us, Dhai, a 34 years old resident of the area told. By initiating the development of toilets for these communities specifically females, Shifa Foundation has improved our menstrual hygiene practices, Dhai said in a firm tone. The best place to make an impact on improving the lives of girls and women is in water and sanitation, she added.  The lack or unaffordability of facilities and appropriate space for menstruating girls lead to serious health problems in those areas due to poor hygiene practices.
