"IDPs are drinking untreated water from the River Nile, and there is still scarcity of water in the Bidi Bidi settlement. Children are falling sick and people are not receiving regular medical care, and so both major and minor sicknesses are not treated," says Peter. "Furthermore, we have found that the limited quantity of water at Bidi Bidi settlements has left many refugee families spending sleepless nights at the few borehole points just to collect water. They collect water for drinking and cooking, and postpone washing and bathing. We observed trucks carrying water from far distances to be filled in the tanks, but the capacity of the tank is little; the tanks are not enough to supply the entire refugee communities."
