Overview

What children should know about bilharzia:

Bambo and his friends enjoy swimming.

Little do they know about the risks they take every time they swim in a dam near their school, until Bambo‛s health deteriorates.

This results in his inability to study.

Like Bambo, there are millions of children who should be aware of the risks posed by poor sanitation and unhealthy habits.
