Dunster House Ltd, is helping resolving global sanitation issues

Dunster House Ltd, is helping resolving global sanitation issues 650 million people worldwide still do not have access to safe, clean water. 2.3 billion people in the world still do not have access to adequate sanitation and almost 8 million people a year die from water related diseases.
The global goal is to provide access to adequate sanitation and hygiene for all by 2030, and we want play our part in helping to achieve this goal.

Dunster House Ltd is a leading manufacturer of timber garden buildings in the UK with a fast growing humanitarian department that aims to help resolve as many humanitarian issues as possible.

Three years ago at the Aidex exhibition in Brussels, the Dunster House team met Oxfam representatives. A few months later Dunster House received a grant to produce a prototype latrine. It was a big step forward for the company and we have since become an Oxfam supplier; providing Raised Latrines and Latrine Superstructures to countries affected by conflict such as South Sudan, where thousands of people are living in temporary camps or small villages without access to water and proper toilets.

Dunster House Director, Chris Murphy explains the importance of the move and achievement:

“We see a major need, especially in Africa in terms of sanity. We are able to address this pressing need, by designing and manufacturing adequate sanitation solutions for developing countries.  We are continuing to work hard on our new humanitarian products to help to tackle the sanitation crisis.”

At the beginning of April, our first order as an official Oxfam supplier order left our Bedford HQ containing:

48 Superstructures,
24 Raised Latrines
48 Squatting Plates

These products are currently situated in the Oxfam logistics warehouse, ready to be deployed for any upcoming. Emergency: Dunster House Ltd will be taking a keen interest in where they end up; and taking pride in the positive effect they will provide.
