Amu (River)
By Diyakah

In Mepe, a town along the Volta River, people made most of their income either by fishing or selling fish. In recent years, most of the fish in this area have died – thus leaving a large porpulation of people jobless and impoverished. Another problem faced in this community is access to drinking water; silt residing on the banks of the river cause weeds to grow in the water and renders the water unpotable. This documentary film demonstrated the effects of this issues barrenness on the lives of people in this geographical area.
