A woman and a child sit under the shade of an umbrella on a boat on the Shibsa river near the Kalabogi Forest Station in Paschim Sundarban area. Residents of Kalabogi village in Khulna’s Dacope upazila have to travel two kilometres to draw drinking water from the forest station’s pond. Because of salinity in groundwater in such areas, there is a scarcity of drinking water. The photo was taken recently.
