A very big bath

Moyna’s home in Bangladesh is completely surrounded by contaminated floodwater.

 

Here, the 10-year-old is taking a bath – the only way she knows to try to keep clean. Children like Moyna are vulnerable to water-borne diseases and respiratory problems because of the time they spend in dirty floodwater.
