Somalia is experiencing its worst drought in a decade, with millions going hungry and being forced from their homes in search of food and water. The charity Save the Children says the impact on families is being felt more severely this season because of multiple and prolonged droughts. Save the Children says nearly 60% of the households in Somalia reported at least one person in their family had lost their source of income – largely due to the large-scale deaths of livestock. On Tuesday, the World Food Programme (WFP) issued a warning that an estimated 13 million people in Kenya, Somalia, and Ethiopia were facing severe hunger.
