Water Security in Congo

On my first assignment with @focuscongo, I remember seeing this boy collecting water for his home, carrying this large, yellow plastic water container. When full, it must have weighed as much as he did!

Images like this tell a story, they capture a genuine daily life moment of people and places so different from mine. It’s an image that I find beautiful, but also forces me to think about the realities of life for so many people.

I’ve seen these yellow containers everywhere I have been throughout Africa, but unfortunately these containers are often full of questionable water, with over 9 million Congolese not having access to sustainable, clean drinking water, this is a huge problem.
