GUWAHATI, June 18 - US-headquartered NGO Junior Chamber International (JCI), jointly with Marwari Mahila Samiti, today started a modernised bathroom cum toilet facility at the Bhootnath cremation ground.
The bathroom has two modernised well-equipped latrines and three toilets and rest room with all modern facilities, said a press statement.
It said the Bhootnath cremation ground receives a footfall of around one lakh every month and during the Ambubachi Mela thousands of people visit the place daily.
�Under the circumstances a proper and well-equipped bathroom/toilet facility was much needed,� it added.
JCI, jointly with Maheshwari Mahila Samiti, had also earlier this week installed a sanitary napkin destroying machine at the Sankardev Siksha Niketan School at Narengi. The school has a total of 850 students and of them 550 are girl students.
JCI has taken up the task to install these machines under its �Suraksha� project. JCI and Maheshwari Mahila Samiti plan to install four more such machines at various public institutions in the city.
