Flying Toilet

Flying Toilet

Due to the non-availability of proper access to sanitary facilities in the heavily populated slums of Kenya’s capital Nairobi, one of the most commonly used methods of waste disposal is the “flying toilet”. A flying toilet is little more than a plastic bag that is defecated in and then hurled away in ditches or on the roadside or as far as possible. During rains water contaminated with excrement can enter residences; some children even swim in it and such close contact leads to fears of diseases such as diarrhea, skin disorders, typhoid fever, and malaria.
