They say that a picture is worth a thousand words. And in this case it’s entirely true. In the bottle on the left is water taken straight from Lake Cariari near Bahai in eastern Chad. On the right is water taken from the lake that’s been filtered, treated and chlorinated by the IRC’s water treatment plant in nearby Oure Cassoni camp for Darfuri refugees.
Which one would you rather drink?
