Decanter's trip to Zambia with WaterAid
Ngombe settlement, in Lusaka. More than 70,000 people live in Ngombe,
which is served by just 55 functioning boreholes. The queues at the
water pumps are very long and the sources dry up quickly, meaning many
go without clean water. Even those who manage to collect the water will
often not get enough water for all purposes and will have to use a
contaminated stream to wash their clothes in.
