Three women (Jane, Lucy and Linda) draw water from a water source(borehole/river).
Jane collects some tree leaves and places them on top of the water as a way of stabilizing and avoiding water spillage.
Linda and Lucy do not do that. They walk slowly instead.
Once home, Jane immediately drinks the water together with her family without treating it.
Linda however, treats her water using water guard/chlorine whilst Lucy boils her water and sieves it after using a white cloth.
After treating their water, Linda and Lucy happily consumes their water together with their family.
Jane laughs at her friends for ‘wasting’ their time for treating the water.
A day after, Jane’s two children fall ill to diarrhea while she is also not feeling too well.
She is deeply worried of her children’s health which prompts her to wonder why she and her family are the only people sick.
She looks on as Lucy and Linda’s children play soccer happily. Jane realizes how untreated water had brought diarrhea on her door steps.
Jane realizes how treated water is good for her family’s health.
She realizes how her behavior of not treating water has a negative impact on her family. She feels ashamed for bringing harm to her family.
To keep her family safe, Linda starts treating her water by either adding water guard/chlorine or boiling and later sieving using a clean white cloth.
She also adapts the usage of a two-cup system.
Her family (children) gets better and joins the other children in playing soccer.
Jane is now wearing a happy face as she looks on her family enjoying a healthy life.
She, together with Lucy and Linda form a happy and healthy community.
