WSA volunteers band together to support our friends in Nepal
A group of volunteers, consisting of past and present Australian international judges and experts have banded together to support our friends in Nepal by generously donating to the Healthabitat Sanitation Program.
Healthabitat is a small Australian based humanitarian organisation devoted to supporting the health of indigenous communities here in Australia as well as in villages in other parts of the world.
The Sanitation program in Nepal designs and constructs sustainable toilets and washbasins in some of the poorest villages. The systems are either septic or biogas and greatly support the dignity and health of local villagers. Through the donations from this group of WSA volunteers, more families and extended families will have a working, professionally constructed fully enclosed toilet and washbasin for life.
Earlier this year, Grant Stewart WSA Plumbing Chief Expert, volunteered his time to travel to Nepal to help support and develop new sanitation systems within remote communities, “the project emphasised the importance of both water sanitation and the preservation of dignity for people in developing nations. Healthabitat has initiated ongoing projects in villages in Nepal that enable families to have a working, sustainable toilet” said Grant.
WSA would like to take this opportunity to congratulate all of those involved for generously donating to this valuable project.
