Bad water causes mass poisoning of refugees
The warden of the compact residence "Slavyanka-Fulat" situated in the stanitsa Troitskaya Zina Magomadova appealed to the Ingush office of the Society for the Russian-Chechen Friendship with a request to help her solve the problem of water supplies in the camp.
The container which is now being used to keep water has rusted through from the inside, but people have to use the water for cooking and drinking. The warden said that the cases of mass poisoning and acute attacks of liver and kidneys diseases have become more often.
Seven families numbering thirty three people are living on this territory. The camp warden appealed to various humane organizations for help many times, but she got only promises.
