    This week’s story from Zimbabwe deals with contaminated water and how it is affecting the livelihoods of local vegetable farmers. Our script of the week is a drama that also deals with contaminated water. In this case, the water is a carrier of a disease called schistosomiasis which is having serious effects on a rural village.

    The drama tracks an exciting process of discovery in which the source of the problem is finally identified and local people co-operate to deal with it. A village leader and other community members relate the story to a radio host.
