Doreen’s son, John, was severely malnourished. At two years of age, he was so small that Doreen wasn’t able to buy him shoes. For months Dr. Solomon, Masaka Referral Hospital’s paediatrician, tried relentlessly to fight off John’s recurrent infections with antibiotics and anthelmintics, without any success. One day, Dr. Solomon decided to visit the family home. Here he identified the main cause of John’s non-stop infections: the neighbours’ open-air sewage passed in front of Doreen’s house. This was barefoot John’s playground. Assuming that the family were too poor to find a permanent solution, Dr. Solomon suggested to lay planks of wood on top of the most contaminated areas in order to decrease John’s exposure to infections. Doreen “woke” up to the doctor’s suggestion and actively searched for resources, something that she had never done before. She decided to restructure her whole shack (barraco) and also bought a new sofa.
