A massive drought has hit the African nation of Kenya.
The drought is so severe that the president, Uhuru Kenyatta, has declared the drought a national disaster.
The drought has affected as much as half the country and Kenya’s Red Cross says 2.7 million people face starvation if more help is not provided.
Other countries in the region have also been hit by the drought, blamed on last year’s El Nino weather phenomenon.
In Somalia, nearly half the population is suffering from food shortages. During the last drought on this scale in 2011, the famine killed about 250,000 Somalis.
In a statement, Mr Kenyatta said the government had allocated $105m to tackle the drought which has affected people, livestock and wildlife in 23 of Kenya’s 47 counties.
