water and sanitation

Handing over

"We organized a raffle and dinner for our staff and everybody enjoyed the anxiousness of winning the premium items - mattresses and wheelbarrows - and laughing at those who won that not-so-hot ones."

By the gate, an old lady lies down in the mud, defeated. Skeleton thin she is wearing a threadbare cotton dress. She has no shoes. She digs in the soil with her scarred hands, so thin you can see her bones. She slowly brings the mud up to her mouth, and eats it.

This lady and the indignity of her situation will be etched in my memory forever.
