Carrying Water home - Mathare

One of the questions that we are examining is whether people contaminate their water in between the time they collect it to the time that they use it to drink or cook with. I think this video is a good illustration of the answer to that question.

FYI - the current community toilet facilities are dumping directly into this river, along with all other garbage/sewage from the community.

Dear Haley,

I have been perusing your blog since yesterday and I should say that I have a lot of respect for the work that you are doing. One of my friends has also been to Kenya in the past and I could listen to his experiences endlessly and thats what made me read your blog with so much of interest.

I hope to read more the same...

Good Work!
