Providing Basic Facilities for Workers

The rubber trees of our Estate was tapped for last five years. The quarry was also in operation until last year. I wonder how people worked there without basic sanitary facilities.

The mud hut is in a delapidated condition where it needs repairs immediately. The roof is leaky in many places, the timbers in the main frame are rot, the clay walls are full of holes and the floor is uneven and covered with dust. I am in a hurry to cover holes in the walls, make the floor flat and repair the roof before workers come for work.

The biggest issue is the absence of facilites. The toilet is now under construction. As the weather is quite bad with heavy rians during the afternoons, I don't know how long it would take to complete the constuction work.

There is another half built concrete structure that we need to repair. I have got a plan prepared for a two roomed house.  The construction work starts at an auspicious time on 27th April. Hope everything goes well in the Estate as planned.
