The Bayaka People

Charity: Water's September campaign this year is focusing a lot on the the Bayaka who live the Central African Republic. The Bayaka have been forced out of the forest in C.A.R. because of logging and now live near villages where they are treated like slaves. To get water, children have to walk 40 minutes to a water source and another 40 minutes back with heavy water containers. If they had water wells nearer to their villages, life would not only be easier for them but it would also promote the use of clean water which would be extremely beneficial to their health. Get to know the Bayaka people a little bit more with these photos and the video above.
