Some 30 less-privileged households in Maak-`n-Las in Kruisfontein, Humansdorp now have access to ablution facilities – for the first time in over nine years.
The four container ablution facilities – each consisting of both male and female amenities – were installed at the emergency houses that were established in 2012 for Ward 4 residents, who did not have any accommodation or the means to built themselves a shelter.
The project, that was completed at the end of last week, forms part of the municipality’s ongoing efforts to eradicate the bucket system in the region once and for all.
