AA MISC.: Water Pumps Don’t Work Well in the Omo River Valley, Ethiopia

People from Duss move to Kundama Village if the pump is working so they can have a small irrigated plot of land.  The truth is, however, that pumps do not work well in this environment.  Often there is not enough fuel to run a pump, and if it breaks they must send word to Dimeca officials which means it may take nearly a month to be repaired. After that amount of time, their crops are dead.
