Due to the lack of a solid waste management system, flying toilets become a hazard during the rainy season, as water sources get contaminated.
Children and women are most vulnerable to infections. A report by the aid agency Amref says incidents of cholera, typhoid and other waterborne diseases are rampant.
Amref has constructed safe water points within the slum. At the moment, there is an average of one toilet for more than 2,000 people.
