Conservation: Guinea

Water for Africa

Africa, Guinea

by Jean Simmons, Diountou, Lelouma, Guinea

Each morning, after washing the dishes from the previous night's dinner, I set aside a small bowl of water for animals to drink. In the concessions, chickens get their water from their owners.

When I wash my clothes, I use the leftover water from the "rinse cycle" of my hand-washing to wash my bathroom and bleach my floors.
