Follow-up from a previous post World Toilet Day:

A Singapore charity is introducing floating toilets to residents living on the tonle sap.

"It is actually a simple system… We're going to use locally available buckets where they can collect the faeces. We are going to use some locally available agent to dry the faeces, that is, using ashes and other local material," said the CEO of Lien Aid, Sahari Ani.

To increase participation, local residents have to build their own toilets.
