Project toilets survive earthquake

Miraculously the project toilets have escaped the earthquake.  The majority are in good condition, and only a few have received damage.  Where houses have been destroyed or damaged, the debris managed to miss the toilets in all but a few locations.

Now that the villagers have relocated to temporary shelters, some of which are clustered together, many toilet buildings are used for safe storage of food and valuable possessions such as brassware and prized pots.

Some older people have even taken to sleeping in the toilet building, once they saw these buildings survive both of the serious quakes.
