Suffering from the worst drought in 60 years, the African public is being forced to walk for several kilometers under the heat in order to access ‘clean water’. Each day, 25 children die due to lack of clean water.
While the tragedy of starvation and drought persists in Somalia, every day 25 children lose their lives because they are unable to find clean water. Turkey's Cooperation and Development Administration (TİKA), is planning to drill open water-wells throughout the country.
