This is a picture of me (Linda Cunningham) walking through the flood waters during Monsoon season, January 1980 in Kota Bahru, Kelantan, Malaysia. A group of volunteers decided to walk/wade through our flooded town. As I think about it today I wonder how we did not get sick with the amazing amount of unhealthy items in that water. Every year for as long as anyone local could remember, the river flooded during the monsoon season. It was expected and planned for.
