For us women, the situation has been very difficult. Before dawn, we get up, then walk six miles with our daughters to fetch water from the pond. Very often we, and our children, get sick when we drink it. In my community, there is a health facility, but the nurse is rarely there, and even if he arrives, there is often no medicine, or we can’t afford it. Sometimes, we consider going to the city of Yendi, but we lack the money to support the cost of transportation, housing, food, and medicine. So when we get sick, it’s very serious.
Recently, our community was blessed with a new water well, which has come to solve one of my biggest problems which were not having safe water close to our village.
