Really pity. Man is a social animal. Since he living with or complled to live his society, he wants everything to his place itself. Cicilization developed along the river banks in olden days why? people were towards water and food. Noe he wants everything has to come to him. Why Marsabit people have to go to fetch water more than 10 of km? let them live near where they get all basic needs like water and food are available. This not only for Marsabit people but also applicable everyone in this world.

If global warming is to blame for the drought, then we have the power to undo the damage. If global warming is not to blame, then why let these people and their culture vanish if we have solutions to save it. Way back in history, before there were solutions, these people would either die or move off and split up and disappear. But we have evolved and can act toward them in an evolved way.

people have inhabited Kenya for thousands of years, and they have been finding water for thousands of years. if there is a shortage of water now it is because of the over-population of humans. some words of advice for Africans: engage in zero population growth- stop having so many children you cant support, and stop poaching and killing your native animal species.

Sam Kinnison once had an act which included yelling at Africans to "move!".

Cynthia Livingston how did the species of humans move and populate the earth? Times were a struggle during migration and expansion then and guess what.... there wasn't a US yet. You move to find the basic elements to survive and adapt, or perish. Actually nature is built on that simple principle.

If I lived there I would kill any animal to feed myself and my family they don't have the convenience of a wall mart every mile like we do here in the USA. They need wells and piping even if they are hand operated pumps.

I am surprised that with all our technology in this world, we have not been able to provide water for this country! It stupefies me!! If the world were to "step up" and be aware of these situations, don't you think there would be a change for the good of all people!!?? I feel it is all political control on these poor people! Something must be done! IF, we the people, come together and "Give a Dam", would anyone be able to stop us?? I think not! Let's do it! I challenge each person that...

Anywhere from $25 to $1,000 - you decide. JUST DO IT!

The "country" has water. Large parts have little. Climate change, deforestation, desertification, overgrazing etcetera.. who's to blame?

If it is not explained to them that their way of life is actually harming themselves in the long run then how are they to realise the gravity of their actions

THank you, Nancy! The problem seems huge but the solutions are not that complicated and totally attainable. It is in our reach and our power to create real change.

Wow, that's a long, long, long way just to get water. How come water cannot be piped in somehow? I thought that Oprah had done something to have water made available to them.. We are so fortunate and don't even have the decentency to be grateful for it.

The problem of water shortage needs to be tackled on urgent basis. The mindset of concerned decision- makers and organizations needs to adapt to the unfolding reality. They can no more avoid a bold decision by hiding behind invalid feasibility studies or unsubstantiated arguments.
