India – West Bengal: A worker manifacturing a makeshift sewage system at Thapathali village at Makaibari Tea Estates, in the Darjeeling region. Despite Makaibari being one of the most popular tea estates in the region, whose retail tea price can reach up to 1,850 USD per kg, villagers complain of not having been provided with water facilities, decent housing and road connections.
