Anamariya's Story of Water and Life in Rwanda

My name is Anamariya Mukakarangwa and I am 16 years old. I was born and brought up in a rural refugee settlement in Western Uganda. I am the fifth born in a family Anamariya’s Story 3 of seven girls and one boy. In 1994 after the war, my family returned to the village of Karangazi in Rwanda with one hundred and twenty head of cattle. After the first few months in Karangazi, we experienced a drought. The cows ate all the green grass. Then the cows ate dry grass. Cows also drank all the pond water.
