Brushing Up on Sanitation

Leida Kruidhof, a nurse from the Netherlands who helped to begin the Trumpeter Community Health Project, has recently returned from a trip to South Sudan to visit the sanitation team and see how they were getting on. She reports that her trip was very encouraging and sends some photos of her activities.



Much of Leida’s time was spent in training sessions for and presentations by the Trumpeters. Right is a photo of a role-play training exercise in which one of the Trumpeters is pretending to be a broken bore-hole!







Mama Lucia from the Mother’s Union gave a lecture on nutrition – knowledge which the Trumpeters can pass on to families in their house-to-house visits.

One of the water delivery tanks in Juba which delivers clean, treated water during the daytime but at night can be tampered with so that dirty water is sold at a cheaper price. The Trumpeters are currently investigating water-collection challenges faced by their communities so that they can develop resources and activities to improve access to clean water.






And there was still time to relax and have a bit of lunch.
