Wonder worms

£14.00

Product description

For families living without decent sanitation, or in areas far from the nearest water supply, providing essentials like toilets and clean safe water can be life-saving. That’s why Oxfam works in some of the world’s harshest environments, digging wells and installing water pumps, taps and toilets – including genius ‘tiger -worm’ loos – so people have the water they need and can protect themselves against deadly disease. Gifts like this one make it all happen. In Monrovia, Liberia, Oxfam has provided tiger-worm toilets for dozens of homes. The loos help families stay healthy, and the worms turn the waste into compost, which can then be used as fertiliser to grow food.




This gift supports our Water for All (WA) projects.

This gift in action

Wonder worms

In the past, the only toilets Mary Isabel and her husband Robert could use were unsafe and a long way from their home. But ever since they got a tiger-worm toilet from Oxfam, life has changed. Now, their whole family is safer. When Oxfam built the loo, Robert went to a workshop and learned how to use and take care of the toilet. Even their children, says Robert, know what to do. Plus the special worms in the toilet break down waste and turn it into compost. They use the compost for the vegetables they grow – it’s completely safe and works brilliantly. “We sell what we grow, and we eat some,” says Robert. Thanks to people like you, more families will be able to stay healthy and protected from disease.
