Couple of boys belly downed on the side road near the entrance of the biggest shopping centre in the city. I tried to look at what they were doing in that position. They were sipping water from the ground with their face down so as not to get their hands dirty. That didn’t shock me though.
As I entered the shopping centre parking lot, however, I got shocked by the number of expensive heavy cars with different organisations’ names on them. Prices of cars are not the problem. But it’s the myriad of NGOs and institutions in the city where drinking black water from the ground still happens.
Thousands have fled home in search of a safe place and food, due to a deterioration of security situation in the Democratic Republic of Congo(DRC). Some were hurt and others lost their family and friends.
