To help prevent water-borne diseases, ECHO has coordinated several long-term projects dedicated to improving hygiene and sanitary disposal systems as well as access to potable water in rural parts of Bangladesh. Especially In remote locations, contaminated water causes serious diseases, made worse by the fact that medical aid is usually unavailable.
We, here at ECHO, are determined to change the water and sanitary conditions in rural Bangladesh through our projects. In 2014, a total of 28 households’ latrine was installed for the poor villagers in Lohalia and Kuripaika of Potuakhali district directly benefiting 120 people. ECHO also held programs on the awareness of hygiene and health related issues including training sessions and distribution of educational materials..
