Collecting water in Ferroviario

Ferroviario a suburb in Maputo. Water is collected from various sources, mostly a network of water storage tanks. There are some underground pipes with water pumps as well as a few windmills from Portuguese Colonial times. As in most of the country water is collected in 25 litre containers. A nominal fee is also paid per container. Celina Chivure sells water at a public fountain. She is in possesion of a small wrench to open the supply to the fountain. A local resident Marcelina Hilario collects her daily supply. Mozambique. 2009. Photo: John Hogg / World Bank
