The inhabitants of the outlying districts of Ambalavao had to go to the city centre to draw water from the municipal fountains, which meant they had to wsait a long time. The municipal water supply network worked for only 7 months out of 12. The rest of the year, the whole population drew water from an extremely polluted river.Voir le projet
