Photo of the week June 12th, 2013

The rains are not just creating inconveniences, but are also increasing risks to health, property and livelihoods. The sudden, and often localised, downpours can rapidly knock down crops, block or damage access routes (roads, tracks, etc) and damage buildings. The subsequent effects of flooded latrines, standing water and lack of hygienic conditions, complicates and compromises the lives of the rural dwellers in many ways. Spare a thought for the rural folks who are currently dealing with mud, water, lack of access and increased disease quotients. Photo courtesy of Medicine on the Move
