Handwashing Station

December, 2014


Ebola checkpoint between Port Loko and Western Districts, Sierra Leone. A handwashing station, which had been created by some enterprising individual(s). The jugs could be manipulated by way of a foot pedal, created out of branches and cords, which would then be used to tip the jugs, releasing the chlorine mixture contained inside.
