Rural Cambodian Toilets

Today, go into your bathroom, look at your toilet and say:  “Thank you toilet. Thank you for being inside, for working, for flushing, for having running water, for being attached to a sewage infrastructure that I rarely, if ever, have to think about.”

Millions of Cambodian families don’t have toilets. Their rice fields, fish pond and rivers instead serve as bathrooms. A pour-flush toilet in Cambodia and brick shelter costs around $350 for materials and construction. It takes about 10 days to build. Photos of those fortunate enough. Photos are from Kandal and Svay Rieng, October and November 2011.
