Earthquake damaged the physical toilet, not toilet in mind

Satta Bahadur Dungaana, aged 55 from Sipapokhare VDC-6 built his latrine with his own effort on the new temporary shelter. His house along with toilet destroyed completely by the earthquake and become homeless for some time. But he encouraged himself to built the temporary shelter nearby his previous house. And, along with the temporary shelter he also built the latrine nearby his present shelter. 

He used his old pan, pipes, U-pipe, CGI sheet, woods and laboured himself and completed on building the latrine. To support him to construct the latrine, some sanitation volunteers from Kathmandu and local communities supported him to complete the building. Now, he is happy and healthy and also encouraged others’ to re-built or, revive the latrines in his communities.
