Photo Share: A village's first source of clean water

I took this pic yesterday in Congo's South Kivu Province: A child collects his drinking water from the first ever clean source in this village, located on a very remote shore of Kivu Lake accessible only by boat. His community built the source as part of an International Rescue Committee-supported development project, which also includes building a school and a health center.
