Mother’s Care


Mother and daughter take a break during their daily walk to fetch water so Monica can use a twig to remove something stuck 5-year-old Cheru’s teeth.

It’s a long, hot walk from their home to the place where they will dig for water to fill their jerry cans. Everything is harderwithout enough water – especially bathing, teeth brushing, and washing clothes. 

Carrying a tea kettle, Cheru walks with other children twice a day to dig for water in a dry riverbed in West Pokot, Kenya. A first-year kindergarten student, she carries water to school and returns home by way of the waterhole to refill her kettle. With other school children, she walks more than 6km a day for water.
