Sanitation

According to statistics, at least 70% of households in Lacnog don’t have a toilet. As a result, people are urinating on different areas and put their waste in a plastic bag for disposal.

In addition, people and pigs live together and there is a good chance that pigs carry the waste everywhere. This has known to have affected the health of the people in the area - most especially children.
