Angtihara Island, Khulna, BANGLADESH

Many of the islands in the Khulna Division lack fresh drinking water, and the villagers have to walk for several kms to get hold of clean water. Here on Angtihara island the tap is working, but the inhabitants need to get to the well before it becomes flooded. Many people are forced to drink salt water because they are not able to get hold of fresh water. This causes numerous health problems including skin diseases and fever. The sea in the Bay of Bengal is rising, affecting the hundreds of thousands of villagers living on the low islands in the south.
