Gang Khan's Story
At just 13 years old, Gang Khan is worried about dying. She has seen many people in her village—including children—get sick and die from drinking contaminated water. But the current water source is all they have…
Every morning she climbs down a slippery, muddy hillside with two empty buckets. She fills them from the water source, which is exposed to raw sewage, and carries the heavy, full buckets back home to her parents and eight siblings. Including extended family, 13 people live in her home.
After fetching water, she’s exhausted… and her day has barely begun. She watches and waits as her younger brothers and sisters drink the water, wondering if they’ll get sick. There’s no medicine in Dak Noi, so she knows sickness, like diarrhea, can be life-threatening.
Gang Khan also worries about the future. Will it be different for her or her siblings than it has been for her parents? Will the cycle of hopelessness and poverty continue for their generation?
