East Africa is suffering through the worst food crisis the region has seen in more than 60 years. Recent drought has devastated the land, crops and livestock, resulting in famine throughout countries such as Kenya, Ethiopia and Somalia.
Families have been struggling to obtain food for their children, who are particularly vulnerable to disease and starvation. Consequently, refugee camps in the region are overflowing with people desperate for relief.
Because of government instability in the area, victims of the crisis are attempting to feed their families with little outside support. Aid is crucial in easing the distress and keeping people alive until the drought eases and the rainy season begins. Several organizations have assembled to provide relief, including Oxfam international and UNiCEF.
