The Wider Image: Water is now gold for desperate Venezuelans
Living with a scarcity of water is becoming the norm for many Venezuelans. Families interviewed by Reuters say they have spent months without receiving any water from the tap after power blackouts cut off supply and pipes failed due to a lack of maintenance. Faced with uncertainty of when it might return, and whether it would be enough, they are conserving as much water as they can take from rivers or buy at shops. They are bathing, washing clothes and dishes, and cooking with just a few liters a day. From the poorest slums, to the wealthiest neighborhoods, the shortage of water cuts across Venezuelan society as families endure the country's deepest ever economic crisis. A 5 liter bottle costs about $2 at a Caracas supermarket, out of reach for many low-income people in Venezuela, where the monthly minimum wage is only around $6 each month.

A Picture and its Story: Yemeni father mourns baby girl who died of starvation
ATTENTION EDITORS - VISUAL COVERAGE OF SCENES OF INJURY OR DEATH Saleh al-Faqeh held the wasted arm of his baby girl as she took her last breath on Thursday at the malnutrition ward of the main hospital in Yemen's capital Sanaa. Four-month-old Hajar al-Faqeh reached the al-Sabeen hospital last week from Saada province, one of thousands of Yemeni children suffering from malnutrition in a country that has been pushed to the brink of famine by more than three years of war. "She has spent two months in a hospital in Saada, but we had to bring her to Sanaa," her father said. Saada province is a stronghold of Iran-aligned Houthi rebels who have been fighting a Saudi-backed government for nearly four years in a war that has killed 10,000. Meritxell Relano, the UNICEF Representative in Yemen, said in September that more than 11 million children, or about 80 percent of the country's population under the age of 18, were facing the threat of food shortages, disease, displacement and acute lack of access to basic social services. The Faqeh family braved a dangerous journey along mountain roads where air strikes from the Saudi-led coalition are frequent. Fouad al-Reme, a nurse in al-Sabeen hospital, said Hajar was conscious when she came to the hospital but she suffered low oxygen levels. "She was like skin on bones, her body was emaciated," he said.

In villages perched high on a mountain in Western Yemen, residents are a safe distance from a conflict raging throughout most of the country but have had to turn the clock back on their lifestyles by centuries. Eighteen months of civil war and shortages have deprived Yemen's 28 million people of electricity and fuel - dinner is cooked on an open fire and dawn light heralds a the start of work in the fields. But far from a country idyll, starvation and a lack of vital medicine have turned sunny days in the crisp green hills into a medieval struggle for survival. People in the Jafariya district of the western Raymah province must now haul basic goods uphill by foot, donkey and even a pulley-powered cable car soaring between peaks.

Dirty water and poor sanitation can cause severe diarrhoeal diseases in children, killing 900 under-five a day across the world, according to United Nations estimates. World Water Day, marked this year on March 22, highlights various concerns about the world's water resources, and in 2016 is focusing on how good access to safe water can create paid work and contribute to a greener economy.
