I agree. Always do your homework! Vet the charities. Ask questions about the Board of Directors. That's why I chose Blood:Water Mission. The also work with partners in Africa and empower the villagers to provide sustainable solutions.

We can improve it! The problem seems huge but the solutions are actually not that complicated. Often the water is only 60 feet below the surface. These places do get rain, they just need a system to catch and contain it during the rainy season so it lasts through the dry season. Blood:Water Mission's dam project is designed and ready to go, as soon as the financial goals are met. Visit them and give what you can. That's how you can help.

We watched a movie on Net Flix about global warming a couple of weeks ago and it is really happening for those of you who think it isn't. I think if we knew that man was the cause it would be easier to fix the problem but it seems to be cyclical too so the real question is what can we do about it. The thing is, people who have no water will need to move and the question is when people from all over the world all looking to relocate to survive, what will happen to the places that are still...

The thing is, people who have no water will need to move and the question is when people from all over the world all looking to relocate to survive, what will happen to the places that are still livable? It is a world wide problem and all Governments need to participate in solving it.

The water crisis is huge when you look at the planet. But when you look at individual communities, there are many places where there are simple, affordable sustainable solutions. We can Build a dam. We can dig just 60 feet below the surface, to get clean water. These are affordable actions we can take. They give water for generations. We cant seem to heal the planet but we can give solutions to one village at time.

In nature a species moves towards water and food. Maybe time to relocate.

I'm not sure how relocation can solve anything. Loosing your culture and disbanding a community and putting stress on other communities by moving in, and leaving your livelihood behind seems to create more problems. There are simple sustainable solution to the water crisis. It is not that complicated to fix. Most of the time, the water is only 60 feet below the surface. It is also not that expensive. Creating sustainable solutions to bring water to these people seems to make more sense to me.

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.

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!

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

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.

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.
