People are seen near water containers in Barmil

People are seen near water containers in Barmil in this recently taken handout photo released on July 21, 2011. A wide swathe of east Africa, including Kenya and Ethiopia, has been hit by years of severe drought and the United Nations says two regions of southern Somalia are suffering the worst famine for 20 years, with 3.7 million people facing starvation. In the village of Barmil, people wait for water because their wells are dry. They are dependent on donations and a water truck which comes and fills the town water tank up. Many walk 6 hours each way to fetch water. REUTERS/Jakob Dall/Danish Red Cross/Handout (KENYA – Tags: ENVIRONMENT HEALTH) FOR EDITORIAL USE ONLY. NOT FOR SALE FOR MARKETING OR ADVERTISING CAMPAIGNS.
