Sanitation Engineers Make ‘Street Map’.

Today I interviewed some of the engineers who are building new toilet and washing facilities in the camp. These are really badly needed. Right now, they’re just huts with grass curtains across the doors and there’s only one for every 35 or 40 people.

The engineers showed me a map of the services they’re planning – on their QuantumSat phones! Everyone’s got them out here it seems. You can see how they have tried to map out the alleys and spaces between the huts. They would only have to name the streets and it really would be just like a town. I managed to get a copy of the map. I’ll upload onto my Flickr account when I get a chance.
