Bangweulu residents washing dishes in same stream children swim, animals drink

In spite of Luapula being endowed with vast water bodies, people are still exposed to unhygienic conditions as seen in pictures of women washing clothes and plates, and children swimming from the same river, while upstream fishing activities take place.

These photos were taken by the Watchdog on Sunday August 2, 2015.
The Women draw drinking water from the same river because of underfunding to the Luapula Water and Sewerage Company, hence failing to supply clean water. IMG_3201 (1)Screen Shot 2015-08-02 at 23.44.41
