Unsafe drinking water and malnutrition are clearly linked. Unsafe drinking water can cause diarrhoea and other diseases weakening especially small children. Terre des hommes has implemented adapted solutions in the different areas where the NGO is present. In the south, where the aquifer is not viable and surface water is the only source of drinking water, Pond Sans Filters (PSF) have been built as well as organic hygienic latrines. Moreover, the villagers are involved in comities managing the PSF and training people to the appropriate use and cleaning of the PSF. In the North, pumps and hygienic latrines have been built. Prevention sessions performed by talented local actors and musicians are going around the target areas spreading messages related to hygiene and safe drinking water. The performances are very good and the villagers go back home singing the prevention messages.
