Laindatang – Mbatakapidu | A day in a village far from everything, to take stock of almost nothing social, medical and infrastructure.
We went there with the Truck Of Life, following the profile of the hills, hazardous paths on which sometimes we had much trouble moving forward. For nearly three hours, we had little to talk with the villagers to discuss the daily lives of impoverished and disadvantaged families.
Together, we took stock of the existing situation: They only have rainwater, which they consume daily. They recover it thanks to ingenious systems which demonstrate their infinite distress. They store this water in a few hand-built reservoirs. People are sick and poor. They eat little and wash only a few times a month.
