Kioko in Misuuni

Kioko, a three-year-old boy in Misuuni, Machakos Kenya, enjoys a warm soda in the eastern heat. At the function, there was more soda than drinking water, probably owing to the high cost of bottled water and the scarcity of drinking water in the region. The nearest well is a couple kilometers away and does not serve the entire community... The situation gets worse: In homes where money is a problem, children are forced to take tea instead of water throughout the day.
