In the Azawak, a vast plain on the edge of the Sahara, a little rain falls during two months of the year. For the rest of the year, there is no water. Imagine scooping water from a muddy marsh. Then imagine that source of water drying up. The children of the Azawak spend their time searching for water. Amman Imman means Water is Life. For the people of the Azawak, their hope rests on water. Humanitarian organization Amman Imman: Water is Life is responding to the request of the people of the Azawak: "Please bring us water."
