During 26 February to 3 March, Lao Red Cross and IFRC jointly conducted an Emergency WASH (E-WASH) training for the Red Cross volunteers in Monlapamock district, Champasak Province. The two-day training was conducted for 21 volunteers from seven villages and one WASH focal person from the Ministry of Health. The E-WASH training began with theoretical sessions and table-top exercises. The second half of both days mainly focused on practical sessions, i.e. installation of the water purification unit (Aquaplus AP 700 CL) and construction of a pour-flush toilet. Borehole and latrines have also been installed in a primary school of Baan Hin Lat with the help of six male teachers and 98 students (44 female).
