Water In Mathare

By a male, 16-21 years old, in Nairobi, Kenya
Map of WATER IN MATHARE Water is a major resource in our daily lives. In Mathare, there is no purely clean water that can be trusted to be good for human consumption. The Nairobi River flows through the heart of the slum after collecting all kinds of garbage and dirt. This therefore creates no alternative source of clean water in their residence. Water is collected from taps which are very few and always dry up when the consumers increases. Most people therefore resort to buy water from local sellers who pull cats with jerrycans of water. The government has been trying to ensure that every individual receives clean water to sustain their lives and avoid some of the water-borne diseases which normally affect people due to dirty water.
