Harare, Budiriro: Prisca (52), of Budiriro, a populous suburb in Zimbabwe’s capital Harare, has dealt with many hardships from unprotected water sources she and others from her community previously used to fetch drinking water from. Her children have been in and out of hospital several times due to water-borne diseases.She is part of the 100 residents who converged at the Budiriro Community Hall recently, to celebrate the establishment of UNICEF supported water kiosks in the high density suburb. She is hopeful that the intervention will lead to a healthier and happier life for her children.“Water has always been a problem in our community. The water would get contaminated and our children would suffer from water-borne diseases. We are happy we will now receive reliable, clean water at an affordable price,” Prisca said.Budiriro, a typical high-density suburb in Zimbabwe, is characterised by poor infrastructure and poor water, sanitation and hygiene facilities. The suburb was one of the epicenters in the recent 2018 typhoid outbreak, which caused 55 deaths and 10 000 reported cases in the community.
