In southern Ethiopia, a simple water delivery system has changed the lives of farmers and herders. Cold air whirls from the shaft of a deep and empty well. A mother limits her children to just three cupfuls of water each a day. Herders trek for hours with their emaciated animals in search of water. Across Ethiopia, these are the images tied to cycles of drought that plague one of the poorest countries in the world. Oxfam and the local organizations with which it works respond to these cycles of drought with both emergency assistance to ease the immediate suffering of people and their animals, and with programs aimed at longer-term solutions to address the region's severe water shortages and to improve the health of its livestock.
