Lack of Sanitation in one of Africa’s Largest Cities

Addis Ababa has a population of about 3 million people.  Recently it has been reported that nearly 25% of those people do not have access to adequate sanitation, meaning  they do not have toilets. Lack of sanitation means that there is a huge risk of disease spreading through the city.

This is one of the reasons that I am so excited about EOR’s new partner, Water First.  Our recent donation to Water First will likely be used to provide clean water to residents in more rural parts of the country, but it is a start.

But can we do more???
