Walter Sakanee, an elder living in Neskantaga First Nation, has had difficulty fighting infections in his legs. He relies on his family members to collect safe drinking water for him in blue plastic jugs from a reverse osmosis machine located at the community’s water treatment plant. He is not able to access the plant on his own due to his physical disability. Photo: Samer Muscati / Human Rights Watch
