Site Investigation Mission to Burundi
On the first day of the trip a visit to the village Rukaramu, not far from the international airport of Bujumbura, was on the agenda.
During a conversation with the village chief (center) and during a tour in the village, he pointed out that a few years ago the installed water extration stopped working. It was installed by a foreign company.
Since then, the population is drinking the dirty brown water from the irrigation ditch. Diseases such as malaria, diarrhea and the guinea worm occur frequently.
When asked what he thinks, what the most important thing for the people is, he said that clean water is the most important thing.
