The Wider Image: Thirst turns to anger as Australia's mighty river runs dry
Reverend Helen Ferguson from Broken Hill prepares for a church service at the Holy Trinity Menindee Anglican Parish in Menindee, Australia, September 1, 2019. The towns of Menindee and Wilcannia have run out of drinkable water and rely on charity donations of 10 litre boxes of water and rain tank water for potable uses. "The river should be flowing," said Ferguson. "When that river flows, the people are just abuzz and the whole town just comes to life. But that hasn't happened for some time now and my prayer is that people don't get worn down through that." REUTERS/Tracey Nearmy SEARCH "NEARMY DROUGHT" FOR THIS STORY.
