"WATER IS PERSONAL"
CHINGOLA, NORTHERN ZAMBIA, 29 October 2005: A dying 17 year girl old succumbs to full-blown AIDS as her mother and aunt bathe her for the last time, Chingola, North Zambia. A lack of access to clean drinking water accelerates the decline of the immune system for those battling HIV in rural Africa. Their compromised immune sytems are unable to handle the parasites and disease carrried in unclean water. As a result HIV + victims die far more quickly faster in those parts of the world with a lack of access to clean drinking water.
