Malaysia's Rural Poor Still Lack Access To Treated Water

Malaysia's Rural Poor Still Lack Access To Treated Water

November marks the start of the northeast monsoon season, raising the risk of heavy rains and flooding in states like Kelantan and Terengganu. However, being displaced from their homes isn't the only threat to residents in these affected areas - in rural parts of Kelantan, and even Sabah and Sarawak, a dearth of infrastructure leaves local inhabitants without access to basic needs like proper sanitation and toilets. In conjunction with World Toilet Day, we speak to Said Alhudzari, General Manager of Program Operations at MERCY Malaysia, for a look at the situation on the ground.
