It is 1pm in Mandera County, Northern Kenya. Under the scorching sun and clear skies, children, women and men hold jerry cans in search of water; a community clearly suffering the effects of the drought.
Mandera is known for episodes of conflict, traditionally fuelled by competition over resources. With the current drought situation getting worse by the day, water is one of the resources that is fast becoming scarce and the lack of it is threatening the health and education of children in Mandera County.
