This is a film of NE Brazil - where many of the internal migrants to Sao Paulo come from

As you will find out too much water is not normally a problem!!

NE Brazil is often more like this:Gallery-Brazil-Maria-Apar-007.jpg
Farmers use bullocks to collect water for their crops and to drink. It can take many hours a day and the water is usually polluted and shared with animals. Because water is so scarce, crop yields in north-eastern Brazil are declining, leading to hunger and malnutrition

Uganda: Sudanese Refugees Leave West

Pascal Kwesiga 20 April 2009

Kampala — HUNDREDS of Sudanese refugees who had settled in camps in western Ugandan are returning to their country in a voluntary repatriation exercise.
The desk officer in charge of Kyangwali, Kiryandongo and Kyaka refugee camps, Emmanuel Turyagenda, on Friday said 448 refugees had been sent home.

He disclosed that the exercise which resumed last week was being facilitated by the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees and the Government.
The repatriation of Sudanese refugees started in 2006 when the Sudanese government requested all countries hosting its nationals to assist them return home.This was after the signing of the comprehensive peace agreement between the Sudan Peoples Liberation Army and the government of President Omar al Bashir.
Turyagenda said a total of 22,222 Sudanese refugees had since returned home in various convoys. He said the latest convoy left last week.
The settlement camps however, are still homes to thousands of refugees from Ethiopia, Burundi, Rwanda, Congo Brazzaville, Central African Republic, Somalia, Kenya and DR Congo.
