Health And Sanitation

We have heard reported cases of disease out break in my village because of water. I never new that this kind of diseases kill and are dangerous until that day I lost my own child due to water related diseases known as diarhoe. My son went to visit a nearby friend whom he described as being in pain that day. The situation became worse until the village members came in full Aid of the victims by taking them to the hospital. On arrival the doctor examined them and said that they were on emergency. After about 4hrs they two boys passed away. They mother came to realize that later this was water born disease and thats how they started looking for ways of making the environment clean.
