Drought ravages northern Kenya

February 10, 2011

Millions of people in northern Kenya are facing hunger and an uncertain future as a drought continues to destroy their crops and livestock.

The drought is also taking its toll on the population’s health and the number of malnourished and ill, increases by the day. And there seems to be little respite.

With no rains forecast over the next three months and the government saying that the country’s food reserves are dwindling fast, some in this region might not make it through.
