When disasters strike, one of the most urgent needs is a safe emergency sanitation system. If human waste washes into creeks and streams used for fresh water, the result can be deadly outbreaks of diarrhea or even cholera. That's why CARE's emergency response teams make latrines one of their top priorities.
