You can't tilt against these windmills. A good wind has literally swept into the lives of the inhabitants of Chile's Coquimbo region as 31 windmills have been set spinning to pump water. Some of the ranchers in this drought-stricken area spend more than 8 hours a day drawing up the precious fluid. Now the windmills, an integral part of a support project sponsored by the United Nations Development Programme, will make water easily available for the people of Coquimbo.
