Kusum (in pink) collects water from a field. She must collect and carry two pots of water and walk for almost 7-8kms everyday in the mornings and evenings to use for her day to day chores. All drinking water must be boiled, as her HIV positive status means she is more susceptible to infection. Kusum is a widow living with HIV. One of her children is also HIV positive, one is not, and the status of the third is still unknown.
