  • Human Waste Woes in the Slums

    KENYA, 2013/01/01 The odour of human waste is unbearable at the pit latrine behind Nancy Anyango's home in Manyatta, a sprawling slum in the western city of Kisumu. Nearby, a heap of rotting garbage lies between long rows of shanties. From a distance can hear the flies buzzing. The open pits exacerbate the threat of disease. They are as well a physical risk for children. Only a couple of months ago, Anyango lost her three-year-old son at the same time as he fell into of them while playing with other kids.
