Lolmodooni and her daughter walk miles for water.

In many drought-stricken parts of the world, moms and children, like Lolmodooni and her daughter, walk for hours to find water.

Lomodooni has to share water with animals.

Often the only source of water available is shared with animals and full of parasites.

Loomodooni fills dirty water into her jerry can.

Handful by handful, they fill their heavy water jugs with the dirty water and begin the long walk back home.

Manisi has no choice but to drink dirty water.

The parasites and bacteria in the water make their families sick. Instead of going to school, children stay at home, sick to their stomachs.

Lolmodooni scopes up dirty water.

But with no other options, the deadly cycle continues. Education, income, health – all rely on access to clean water.

Lolmodooni's Walk For Water

Lomodooni walks for 3 hours daily to collect water.

Lolmodooni lives in Northern Kenya with her little ones. Every morning she wakes up before dawn and collects her water jugs. She walks for three hours one way to a small pond, or if the animals are overcrowding, a dry riverbed further away. Stooping down to fill her water jugs, Lolmodooni collects as much water as she can for her family. Manisi, one of her children, often comes with her to help collect their daily water.

Lolmodooni knows that giving this water to her family will make them sick. It’s full of parasites and bacteria that upset their stomachs and steal the nutrients they need to grow and be healthy.

For Lolmodooni and Manisi’s family, clean water can change everything. With clean water, she will no longer have to walk for miles. Her children will no longer get sick. Her family will have more time to care for their livestock and participate in income-earning opportunities. And, long-term, Lolmodooni and families like hers will help their village overcome poverty.
