Deep in the 21st Century, in the center of Macedonia, the authorities’ negligence has caused an absurd situation, probably not seen even in Third World countries:

Residents of the Vodomila village are forced to drink their own feces.

For years, the water from the village’s supply has been bacteriologically unsafe, and people have been paying it as drinking water. But a group of young activists from the village would not accept this and lead a fight for clean water.
