LES MALADIES HYDRIQUE:Fièvre thypoÎde,parasilose,cholera ect...

Nous sommes entourés par ces maladies à causes de la carence d'eau qui handicape son héradication.
surtout à cette période de saison sèche ,plusieurs quartier n'ont pas alimentés d'eau, il faut aller à 3km avec un bideau sur les dos sous les soleil,un bideau coût 100 FC pour 20 litres tu partira combien de fois pour avoir une cantité suffisante à la famille? souvent nous manquons même 500FC par jour essayer à la pripreté.
combien d'enfant qui subit les accidents en cours de route avec de bideau au dos, les filles qui étaient violées par les même angle,des noyades dans la rivière de ruzizi et lac kivu,des victimes qui sont morts par ces maladies.
Recomandation s'il y avait moyen d'augmenter les carenage d'eau qui sera en mesure d'alimenter toute la ville c'est depuis l'époque belge qu'on avait construit ce carenage reçoit son robinet et disponibilisé les désinfectant.

WATER-BORNE ILLNESSES: Typhoid fever, parasites, cholera, etc.

We are surrounded by these illnesses because of the water deficiency that makes it difficult to eradicate them.
Above all, in this dry season several neighborhoods are not getting water. They have to travel 3 kilometers with a pot on their backs under the sun. A pot costs 100FC for 20 liters. You will go how many times in order to have a sufficient quantity for a family? Often we do not even have 500FC a day to keep ourselves clean.
How many children have had accidents along the road with the pot on their backs. girls who were raped in the same conditions,, drownings in the Ruzizi River and Lake Kivu, victims who die from these diseases.
Recommendation: If there were a way to increase the quantity of water to be able to supply the whole town. The supply system and the pipes date from the Belgian era and we need more disinfectant

J'ai traduit votre journal

Bonjour,

J'ai traduit votre journal en anglais. Ce que vous avez écrit est très important. Il faut avoir de l'eau propre pour éviter ces maladies graves. Il serait très bien d'avoir de l'eau pur suffisante pour chaque famille dans la ville. Je suis sure que le voyage à pied est très dur. J'espère que vous verrez une augmentation de l'eau dans la ville bientôt.
