The singing wells of Dubluq
How herders in southern Ethiopia find water for their cows in the deadly winter dry season.
The dry season is a deadly time for the Borena herders of southern Ethiopia. There is little water, and it's hard to find grass for their cows to eat. But they have ways to cope: their traditional eelas, wells they use in the dry times to help their cows survive. See, and hear, how the Borena use these wells to survive, and how Oxfam America helped one clan optimize their well to make it more efficient.
