Read the following passage carefully and answer the questions below it.
Mbinya had returned after fetching water five kilometres from her home. She had carried a heavy 20- litre jerrican on her back after colleting water from a seasonal river. The river had dried up because of the drought, so it had taken Mbinya at least an hour to scoop water from sand in the river bed.
By the time she got home, Mbinya was so thirsty that she drank a glass of the water without boiling the water. Mbinya knew about boiling water from her lessons at school, but the scorching seen and distance she had walked had made her very thirsty. She couldn’t wait for the fire to be lit, and the water to boil and then cool down to quench her thirst! This water was unsafe for human consumption.
Mbinya and her siblings live with childhood diseases that can be prevented. Mbinya has worms, her brother has diarrhoea all the time, and her thirteen-year old sister, Julia, has a ringworm infection on her head.
1) What is Mbinya’s life in the village like?
2) Why is it difficult for Mbinya to collect water?
3) What should Mbinya do to make the water safe for drinking?
4) Why did Mbinya not boil the water before drinking?
5) What have you learnt from this story?
