GFA-supported Compassion Services teams construct toilets, also known as sanitation facilities, for people who, like Iniyavan, do not have the means to do so on their own. In 2016, GFA helped construct 10,512 toilets. Thanks to these acts of compassion, Iniyavan’s family and thousands more no longer face the potential dangers of wildlife, the risk of contracting diseases, or the humiliation of being seen during a private moment.
“Now, since I have this toilet built in my house, I don’t have to worry. My family and I don’t have to go to the tea garden for toilet, and it is very safe here,” Iniyavan said. “I am very . . . grateful to all those who donated the money, who thought about us and gave us all the facilities. Of course, my words are not enough to say thank you because you have expressed your love so much.”
