Water Borne Diseases:

Diseases like cholera and typhoid, as well as diarrhoea and dysentery,  are spread through water. Germs of  these diseases multiply in the gut of  the infected person and come out in  the faeces. Eggs of worms also come out in faeces.

If  the infected faeces and urine are passed in an open field, as is unfortunately done in most  of our villages, germs or eggs may be carried to the source of  local water supply,  such as  ponds or'rivers. Bathing or washing of utensils in such water, or drinking it, can infect other  people. Sornetinies in  slum areas, the latrines are too close to handpumps and thus drinking  water becomes a source of disease. It goes without saying that people who are obliged to  live in  such areas, or wh;have  inherited a life style of using fields for toilet, are the ones  . who suffer mob!  from water borne sickness.
