In Achham, most people collect their water from a community Dhunge Dhara (stone water tap). Women often walk for hours each day hauling jugs of water up terraced hills. This water is used for drinking and washing, but large livestock such as buffaloes and cows consume the largest quantities. This patient is drinking from the Bayalpata Hospital Dhara after her appointment.
