Bolivia is deep in the middle of a punishing drought, likely caused by the El Niño system in the Pacific last winter. It’s gotten so bad that taps have dried up, and the president has declared a national emergency.

The drought is the worst Bolivia has seen in 25 years and has affected 125,000 families. Homes had only had three hours of water every three days recently, and no rain is forecast until December, according to Al Jazeera.
