The water from this spring is not drinkable, but there is no other one. Muddy, smelly and infected with micro organisms and parasites, this water paradoxically represents the greatest of all dangers. After decades of drought, most of the rivers and wells in the region have dried up. The remaining water sources, just like this spring, are depleting due to the population increase and the livestock they maintain. There is an ongoing conflict between the small villages regarding ownership of the water. Samre, Ethiopia.
