Description: Caption:
Photographed in 1964, on the Caribbean island of Puerto Rico, this Puerto Rican woman was filling her water pails with water she was obtaining from a chlorinated water source. The chlorine effectively kills any microorganisms or parasites, thereby, reducing the spread of schistosomiasis, also known as snail fever, and bilharzia.
