Up the river

Embarking from a more accessible village and heading upriver to check on reports of several sick/dying people. The patients were not as bad as we thought, they had just stopped eating and drinking (sometimes happens here). One pregnant lady had a fall and did not move or speak until we listened to the baby and felt it move (I think she was mute and lay still due to fear).

The kids on the riverbanks use netbags to swim along the muddy banks and try to nab small fish.
