The Kolkata Municipal Corporation constructed a community toilet in Sick Line 8 years ago, but people did not maintain the toilet block properly. Consequently, we were forced to defecate in the open beside the railway tracks or near the pond. This not only polluted the pond water but also posed health risk due to snakes, piled up slush and dung. Finally, Water For People India in 2018 renovated the community toilet. After the construction of the toilet, our mothers and sisters are living a life with dignity. We don’t need to defecate in the open anymore. Water is available 24×7 with separate enclosures for both male and female. The community members utilise the toilet facilities and keep it squeaky clean. Due to support from Water For People India, we feel worthy to move on in our lives. No words are enough to express our gratitude. I take pride in my new role as a member of the WATSAN committee for maintaining the toilet block.
