Before Eau et Vie project in Bhashantek

Eau et Vie - Bhashantek (Bangladesh) - January 2012

“We get water from a pump linked to the pipes of illegal vendors. These poor quality pipes have holes and much dirt comes in; even stool. Sometimes water is only available one hour a day. To get water, we have to queue at the pump and then pump up the water ourselves, which is exhausting. And the water is bad for our health: we can see dirt floating in it, we have skin problems, and we easily get diarrhoea, stomach aches… And we need doctors because we are always sick due to this bad water. If someone helps us solve these water problems, we will give all our support.”, explains Rhosheda in 2012.
