Refugees collecting water. A family of Sudanese refugees carrying water back to their camp at Breidjing in Chad. Every day, lines of women and children carry jugs and pots of drinking and cooking water from distribution points to their tents. To get extra water to wash clothes, families dig pits in nearby 'wadis' (seasonal river beds), creating shallow pools from which to get water. Photograhed in 2004.
