“My daughter is weak; she’s losing weight… I have no food. My child is starving.”
The United Nations has declared this the worst humanitarian crisis since WW2.
“We’re in a state of mourning…This porridge will last us the day, no longer. If a neighbour helps me again, we’ll eat. If not, we won’t eat…It’s the same for everyone here. Everyone’s got problems.”
Gumato, Turkana County
“It doesn’t feel good…there’s not enough food, but we’re getting some rations at the Early Childhood Development centres…my family has lost a lot of sheep and goats in the drought.”
Boru, 9 years old.
