Thank you so much for this magazine which give us an insight into the situation of Water Sanitation and Hygiene in Africa. However, if my eyes and mind serves me well you used Rwandan flag on the case study of Burundi.

I would like you to go back and double check it if it's a mistake kindly correct it.

Thank you so much
