Clean and safe drinking water is so common in the developed world, that most people take it for granted. However for a majority of those who live in rural Somalia and Ethiopia, clean water is a luxury that is hard to come by.
This is a problem not only for villagers and nomads, but also for their cattle, which are relied upon for milk, meat, and trade.
In an effort to make water more accessible to people in the Horn of Africa, Life for Relief and Development commissioned the digging of several new water wells.
