Putali Tamang (66 years old) lives in Lama Tole – 4, Ngarkot VDC in Bhaktapur District. She is compelled to drink water from unprotected source. She finds difficulty in transporting even a bucket of water to home from the source due to her old age. During rainy season there is enough water at the source but the water gets muddy and hazy, while in dry season, volume of water flow gets low and takes hours even to fill up a small water bucket. It took half an hour to fill the mug seen in the picture to her at the source. She lives alone and doesn’t get support from her son in collecting drinking water though he lives next to her home.
