Ghana Slum Sanitation
Photographed for WaterAid UK, this series portrays the sanitation problems faced by urban slum dwellers in Ghana.
Few houses have private toilets, forcing residents to either use a public toilet or, too often, find the nearest open ground, drain, or waste dump. Many houses that once had private toilets have lost them to flooding or erosion.
The series was shot in four locations:
Tamale - capital of Ghana's Northern Region and its fourth largest city
Old Fadama - located in Accra, Ghana's capital, this is a famous and well established slum settlement
Nima - another well known slum settlement in Accra, Nima faces new problems caused by government works
Kwasi-Bu - a little known area in disadvantaged suburban Accra with typical problems
