The department of Mayotte is experiencing a serious water crisis, cut off two days out of three. To deal with this, bottles of water were transported to the site to relieve the people who need it most.

In a ship which has just docked in Mayotte, there are 600,000 liters of bottled water. An invaluable cargo, while the department suffers from thirst. These provisions are reserved for fragile and at-risk people. In Mayotte, the water is cut off two days out of three. “I have to buy bottled water for the kids, it’s back to school. And there is also consumption at home“, testifies a man between the shelves of a supermarket.

Some cannot afford to buy water

Water is one of the main expenses of residents. “I have a special budget to store bottled water at home“, confides another man. Others cannot afford to buyofbottled water and must resort to heating their water before drinking it. Another option, although insufficient given the needs of Mayotte: pumping and purifying river water.
