Families are in need of food
Parts of East Africa are suffering one of the worst droughts on record in the last 40 years. Life in this arid and semi-arid region is often difficult, but with the last four rainy seasons failing, the situation is becoming more desperate.
14 million people across the Horn of Africa, including Kenya and Ethiopia, are facing urgent food security needs and potential famine. That could increase to 20 million or more over this year as the forecast for the next rainy season is expected to be less than average.
