@farahkhad for #AJEinpictures ••• We found Mahad Abdulaziz walking his father’s camels from Biyo-Cade to their home several miles away. Biyo-Cade is a secluded village located on the bottom of a dried river valley. Without a car, one has to walk long distances over large, rocky ravines to get to it. “It is the only source of water for a long time. It’s the only place we can take our animals to drink,” says Mahad.
The skeletal appearance of the camel shows how the severe drought has affected them. And although all three of his family’s camels are still alive, Mahad reported that many of their goats have died.
Action Against Hunger with support from SomRep rehabilitated shallow wells and provided taps for easy access to water in Biyo-Cade.
