Greenhouse in Guysborough County, Nova Scotia, Canada.

My father built this greenhouse with salvaged windows and wood from abandoned crumbling barns and our forest.  He built the foundation with handmade cement and rocks from our property.  It is perfect for growing tomatoes in our maritime climate.

5centsapound: Mustafah Abdulaziz: Water Scarcity in Ethiopia and Pakistan (2013)

Image 1: "Bringing the water is not a simple task,” says Mariam Bakaule of the mountaintop village of Jarso in southwest Ethiopia.. “This is the essence of women. Water and woman are synonymous here.”

Image 2: Women of Tharpakar in the southern Sindh Province of Pakistan work together to pull water from a well. Even when one person is done, they all remain at the well to share in the task.

Image 5: After reaching the dry riverbed, women must spend time scratching the dirt until brackish water appears, scoop it into their containers and carry the 20 kilograms back up the mountain.

Image 6: One of the effects of the flooding was salinity in the ground, which affected the ability for the agricultural region to support itself. Here, sheep graze on small shrubs that continue to grow.

Image 7: A grandmother comforts her great-grand child as he suffers from diarrhea, caused by the unsafe drinking water in the town of Thatta. Diarrhea is one of the leading causes of child mortality worldwide.

Women and young girls are responsible for the collection of water, four times a day, often at distances requiring them to trek across mountains in the morning dark and twilight.
