No Water


Last updated 7/15/2019 at 2:18pm

There is one toilet. There are 18 women who share one toilet. There is no way to open the reservoir tank. In fact, the toilet has a unique construction. The top of the reservoir tank is a sink.

The sink is broken. The only way to get a drink of water is to ask the staff for a drink. The man I ask tells me to drink from the toilet.

Our children have been taken from here, hopefully to a place with clean water. I don’t know how I could contain myself if my children were in here — with no water.
