Tuesday, November 10, 2015. Orange Walk Bureau Reporting: Several families from the Village of San Victor in the Corozal District benefited from the Participatory Hygiene and Sanitation Transformation (PHAST) program spearheaded by the Red Cross with the construction of new latrines for underprivileged families.
Red Cross hygiene promoters and technical experts began working in rural communities using an approach known as PHAST, in which the villagers themselves set up water and sanitation committees responsible for hygiene and waste management.
This particular project is one funded by the Alba Petro Caribe fund to a tune of 30 thousand dollars. The villagers have expressed their gratitude for the assistance in making their living spaces sanitary.
