Photo Friday: A Long Walk

Hiding behind her bucket is her 3-year-old daughter. They have an hour walk to their nearest water source where she'll fill up 60 pounds to carry back in 105 degree heat. But you wouldn't know it from the smile on her face. Desert people are amazing.

Blood:Water has regional water rehabilitation projects, including dam reconstruction and rain catchment tanks, at primary and secondary schools, as well as sanitation and hygiene training. We have also partnered with Food For the Hungry to build a health clinic which serves those wrestling with HIV/AIDS in this often neglected region of northern Kenya.
