“…Part of Khayelitsha, one of the world’s five biggest slums, Endlovini is home to an estimated 20,000 people who share just 380 or so communal toilets. However, [some families] live in an area where there are no easily accessible toilets at all — and according to the community, residents have literally been dying for a pee…” (Totaro, 10/12).
