Andrea Kong’o Spring is one of many sources on which people from Shitaho Community rely. This water gathers in a pool that is open to contamination in many ways; rain washes feces, fertilizers, and garbage into the water. People and animals step in and out of the water, not to mention the animals that drink directly from the spring.
Outbreaks of typhoid and cholera run rampant through the community, draining people’s time, finances, and overall opportunity.
