"The water for washing them has been brought from a nearby well in the old olive oil can, and is an example of what caused a typhoid epidemic in the city last August. Was [sic] has swolled [sic] Tirana's population to twice its normal size and over-strained the water supply so that the people used the wells which were often infected. UNRRA helped the situation by bringing in anti-typhoid vaccine and by importing an extra pump which would double the output of the water works, and a mile of piping. When the piping has been laid this woman will no longer have to go to the well for water. (Alb. Ph. 141461 - photo by Crooke, UNRRA Albania Mission)."
