Jordan, 2015: This family of six, members of the Bedouin ethnic group, move from place to place in the desert, following access to water and food for their 700 sheep. They use 8,000 litres of water daily – 200 litres for cooking, drinking and washing clothes and dishes, and 7,800 litres for their herd. “Water is cheap when it’s available,” said Um Ibrahim (second from left), “but when it’s missed, it’s the most valuable thing.”
