In a small village not far from Mt. Kenya, a young boy gathers water from the only real water source he knows: a dirty, seasonal, river.   The riverbanks are laden with livestock urine and feces. Drinking this water causes diseases such as typhoid, brucellosis and malaria.  Although these diseases can be cured through the intake of proper medication, many of the poor who live in this area are unable to afford the medical care. Communities like these benefit innumerably from Matanya's Hope rainwater storage tank donations.
