More than half of Kenya's population lacks clean water access

The government is attempting to bring more water to more people, but it has become increasingly difficult to find and some communities rely upon infrequent government water deliveries.

    More than half of Kenya's population only have access to unsafe drinking water from ponds, shallow wells and rivers.

    The lack of clean water, caused largely by prolonged drought, is causing conflict between farming communities.
