Memories of another East African drought

Anne Lynam Goddard has personal experience of drought in Africa. In the mid 1980s, she was a young aid worker based in Kenya. She was also a first-time mother of a three month-old baby.

On a trip to a refugee camp, accompanied by her son, Anne came face-to-face with the terrible reality of drought, and of the devastating impact it has on families and children.

In this recent interview, while assessing the impact of yet another drought in East Africa, Anne reflects on that journey she made over 30 years ago – an experience she has never forgotten.
