A dual-use toilet

Did you know that in rural areas of the India , only one family in four has toilets? In the slum of Jagadalpur Padia, for example, there is no access to safe water sources. Terre des hommes (Tdh) has therefore created the health infrastructure to ensure that the water consumed by the inhabitants is not contaminated with feces and thus protect their health.

For development practitioners, these advances in mapping, when coupled with raw data and images from the ground, have created compelling, interactive ways to display and convey data about their current projects.

Mali: A health centre made operational

It has been in an unfinished state for so many years, that the villagers had almost given up hope of seeing their new community health centre completed. Resigned to this fact, they would continue to go to an old, decrepit and cramped building in the middle of the market square in Doura, Mali.

“The child kept holding my hand sending me a powerful message: Thank you for changing my life.”

At the occasion of World Humanitarian Day, Terre des hommes (Tdh) interviewed Dr. Khitam Abu Hamad, Head of Terre des hommes Gaza Office. In between organising a food distribution and recruitment interviews, she managed to take a few minutes aside from her busy schedule to take a look back at what happened to her and Tdh in Gaza in the past six weeks.

Dr. Khitam went through heavy shelling (airstrikes, mortars, navy strikes on the nearby harbour, in front of the Tdh office) and countless failed ceasefires. During this time she never stopped worrying about the children of Gaza.

South Sudan: Clowning around with children

Life for those people who have been displaced by conflict in South Sudan is extremely hard. They are living in temporary tents and shelters during a rainy season which brings mud and disease. They have very little access to health care, sanitation and education. This is especially felt by the children who have been forced to leave their homes and schools and many of whom have lost family members and witnessed violent conflict.
