��I vomit blood, and I can��t even walk because it��s too painful.��

A schistosomiasis infection that can be life-threatening just by touching the body with water contaminated by parasites. It penetrates the skin and enters the body, lays hundreds of eggs in the blood vessels, destroys the human liver and organs, leading to death. In this place when the unknown disease comes, there is no choice but to endure abdominal pain and shortness of breath.

"If it was a visible bug, I'd catch it...The water on Kome Island is dangerous."

Kome Islanders at the crossroads of life and death. Unprotected from the threat of parasites. There is a vicious cycle in which the excrement of people infected with parasites contaminates rice fields, and contaminated rice fields infect other people. People on Kome Island cannot avoid parasites or leave the lake where they live.

��The patients are suffering from liver damage. Just drinking contaminated water or physical contact can lead to infection.�� - Kome Island Clinic Doctor

One of the six major tropical diseases set by the World Health Organization,'Schizotomy', penetrates the body through the skin and mainly damages organs such as the liver and bladder. 200 million infected worldwide, 200,000 deaths per year. 70% of Tanzania Kome Island residents are infected with schistosomiasis.
