Sanitary Latrine – Cecilia Magdalena Xitamul

Cecilia, her husband, Lucas, and their four children, John (14), Vanessa (12) , Rosaura (9) and Dalmi (7), live in a small community, near Lake Atitlán, Sololá. While Lucas works in the fields, Cecilia is a homemaker.

Before partnering with Habitat Guatemala to receive the family’s sanitary latrine, the family had been using the old one for over nine years, Cecilia explains that it was in poor conditions and uncomfortable, “This one is better! It is easier to clean, and easy to use for my children,” says Cecilia.

About her experience with the volunteers, she shares; “It was a fun day, we played and worked together. We are happy with our new latrine. Thank you all!”
