Ethiopia drought

The Story

The Story

Millions of people in Ethiopia, Kenya and Somalia have been affected by the drought in the Horn of Africa. Years of erratic rains and drought are threatening pastoral communities in the Somali region whose animals have died and crops have been decimated.

Rainfall can be localised and irregular, with some places receiving rain while other places only kilometers away receive none. People in Jarar told Oxfam there had been an influx of people with livestock seeking water and pasture from other districts.

Many people in affected areas depend on humanitarian aid for their survival.
