* Water treatment in Sudan saves lives * 08 Sep 2006 Treating disease at its source – 158 wells in Nyala are being chlorinated to curb the outbreak of acute watery diarrhea – or AWD - that’s taken hold in south Darfur. Seven thousand cases have been reported since April, prompting a major purification project by UNICEF and local authorities. SOUNDBITE: Msfin Lemma, UNICEF project officer: “As you can see this is a borehole, producing water for south of the city. It was not chlorinated before, but finally UNICEF and the government managed to install this gas chlorination unit over here and this water is for the first time chlorinated and the people who are in the south of the area are now getting chlorinated water.” Donkeys bring carts of water that are chlorinated and tested. But the process starts with treatment in the wells and pipes that supply some three million people. But more needs to be done to stop potentially fatal AWD from spreading. So UNICEF has also launched an extensive hygiene campaign. SOUNDBITE: Rahma Eisa Abdel Kareem, UNICEF assistant project officer: ”We felt we had to spread the message in the whole community at each level. We started with the schools, the imams and now we are focusing on the households so that we protect the women and the children and their family.” This is the latest victim of acute watery diarrhea – a 20-month-old baby who has become dehydrated. But thanks to better awareness about the disease he’s getting proper care at the hospital. Further contamination is controlled by chlorine sprays. Already there are signs that the campaign is working. Deaths from acute watery diarrhea have fallen to three percent and fewer new cases are being reported. Millions of people have been protected through education and water treatment.
