Drinking water for all: a sustainable reality in Hamadjangui

Being an inhabitant of the “Cameroon’s water tower” and be facing water scarcity and hydric diseases can seem unbelievable, but true. CECOSDA has therefor organise a training session with Hamadjangui’s women on drinking water treatment.

 

The treatment of drinking water is a major public health issue in Cameroun’s villages, notably in the south of the country. In spite of its status as “water capital of Cameron”, the region of Adamaoua has not escaped this reality. Also, in relation to its goal of guaranteeing access to quality water for the largest number of village communities, the Centre for Communication and Sustainable Development for All (CECOSDA) organized, on December 6, 2014, an educational session with the women of the village of Hamadjangui (Adamaoua Region).

Lead by the CECOSDA team in charge of this region, the meeting followed-up on a study of the knowledge of women in the region in terms of water-born illnesses and processes to make drinking water potable. Feedback from the field showed that the goal was generally to deal with the risks linked to the consumption of contaminated water, especially during the dry season, when nothing better was available. Also, the first part of the session dealt with an exchange oriented around the experiences of women with the risks linked to the consumption of non-drinkable water, then with a presentation of a certain number of processes to make water drinkable.

After the discussion phase, a practical session, which consisted of demonstrating the different methods to make water drinkable, was held. The women were also able to discover the process of combining the methods of sedimentation (decanting and coagulation with Moringa powder), filtering (using a very fine cotton cloth), and chlorination (with the help of a couple of drops of bleach). The questions asked by the participants on the effectiveness of pouring bleach monthly into wells allowed for the understanding that it is necessary to combine the three water treatment methods at home in order to combat different forms of impurities in waterways and wells that are not treated or treated poorly.

 

Proud of their new know-how, the women of Hamadjangui thanked CECOSDA, promising the team to spread the “word” to those who were absent. In response to these promises, Nadine EkoumaEpanda, head of the delegation, reminded the women that it is necessary to combine their knowledge with the respect of cleanliness of storage containers and hands when serving drinks.
