KULALEY, KENYA - JULY 5: Raha Adow, age 6, carries water from a well to the family house on July 5, 2011 in Kulaley, Kenya. Two successive poor rains, entrenched poverty and lack of investment in affected areas have pushed millions of people into a fight for survival in the Horn of Africa. This is the driest this area has been since sixty years. People in smaller town are usually fortunate to have water. In rural areas, most wells has dried up and some people was as much as eight kilometers to fetch water. Most of the livestock has perished and the remaining stock has often been taken far away for better conditions. Many has even crossed into neighboring Somalia for better pasture.
