DRC Man Carries Water to Restaurants


Democratic Republic of Congo, Africa

Sugabo Shabani, a widowed father of eight, purchases drinking water for 50 Congolese francs (3 cents) per 19-liter (5-gallon) jerry can, which he carries and sells to restaurants at a market in the city of Kitchanga, in the Democratic Republic of Congo’s North Kivu province. Shabani walks to the market carrying two jerry cans by hand, and he can take nearly 500 liters (130 gallons) per day.
