    This issue’s script of the week is from our latest script package, which focuses on water integrity. It shows how one person’s corrupt actions can affect many people in a community.  Prisoners, local villagers, doctors and prison officials are among the people who explain how corrupt actions, and the lack of water it caused in this case, affected their lives. Because access to clean water is so vital, corruption in the water sector can have particularly serious consequences, as we hear in this script. The script is based on a real situation, and actual interviews with the people involved.
