More than 10 million children are among those facing severe drought in the Horn of Africa. The BBC reports that the UN’s children’s body, Unicef, estimates that this figure is three million higher than it was just two months ago. They say that unless more money comes in and rainfalls, the region could face “an avalanche of child deaths”. Unicef’s Executive Director Catherine Russell told the BBC that the drought was “the worst climate-induced emergency in 40 years”.
