A young boy dips his cup into a plastic barrel of water before drinking during a celebration of the parish priest's 25th year being ordained in Lukeleli, Tanzania on November 16, 2008.

This water has a much higher chance of being infected with animal runoff and other sources of negelected tropical diseases.
