Description

The village of Zin Pyun Gon, nestled in Myanmar's Ayeyarwaddy Delta, appears idyllic in at first glance. But the water that gives this community life also presents a serious threat to its health. While the water looks clean and tastes good, it actually contains arsenic, which over time can cause of range of serious health ailments. Fortunately, this situation is being addressed in Myanmar by UNICEF and its health and water counterparts.
