Bojongsari village, especially Cipari village is prone to drought, but around the MCK there is a dug wells that almost never diminished despite the dry season. But the condition of this MCK already does not meet standards of Clean and Healthy Lifestyle (PHBS).
The location of MCK is in the public toilets on waqf land owned by Mr. Misjar (68), who allowed to build MCK on his land. “This MCK is never been repaired for 45 years. Alhamdulillah now Rumah Zakat is willing to build toilets for the public, I’m pleased if this land can be used for people to build a MCK , moreover the water here is not receded” he said.
According to local leaders, Mr. Tarso (45) MCK is commonly used for 27 families, when the dry season comes this toilets are often used for 1 RT. In addition water is also used to irrigate the ablution in the mosque around. Most of public toilets in the Bojongsari village area are located in the middle of the plantation, because that’s the location that contains a lot of water sources. That is for anticipating drought when dry season comes.
