SMALL IS BIG IN PRECAST FOR LIFE

Elematic is joining the Red Cross to make the smallest precast unit in the world into the biggest single element for improving family lives in developing regions. To do that, we invite you to participate. Our goal is to collect 400 hand prints, which will result in a donation of 400 latrines to the Red Cross during BAUMA 2013.

Latrines are common and easy sanitation solutions for developing countries with restricted manufacturing and building resources. They are cheap to make, install, replicate, and keep clean. Latrines are built of a plate, sheltering walls and a hole in the ground. The plate is made with a mold to ensure easy mass production.

Lack of access to safe water and sanitation facilities, combined with poor hygienic practices, causes death, disease, and indignity, especially for women and children. Local artisans have skills to build the latrines by community requirements. Trained Red Cross volunteers support communities by raising awareness and giving hygiene and sanition information. Supplying 400 latrines will improve the well-being of 2400 people – a small effort can make a big difference. Join our community project, Precast for Life, and leave your hand print at our BAUMA stand.
