When the drinking water at a village in Andhra Pradesh tasted bitter and started causing upset stomach, our team decided to probe further. One of the locals, Malikarjun directed the team to the source of the water, which was a village holding tank. After testing the water they uncovered that it was ridden with harmful bacteria.
Based on this experience, the team decided to start community awareness with water testing. A village meeting was called, and an informational video about water and cholera was shown to the women. A discussion ensued followed by a public water test to demonstrate the results. As the community understood the risks, they became aware about simple preventative solutions such as boiling the water which could lead to better health for all.
