Each day, Nancy and people from surrounding towns walk for miles to the dried up river Enziu in Maatini village, Kitui, Kenya. They dig through the sand until they reach water and scoop the sandy water into water cans to carry home to drink, feed livestock and for household use. Kitui is a semi-arid region of Kenya and its people suffer severe water shortages like this during the dry season.
