The drought has caused significant losses of livestock in Turkana, Northwestern Kenya, where most people are pastoralists and depend on their goats, camels, and cows for milk, meat and currency.

Malnutrition weakens children’s immune systems so they are vastly more susceptible to pneumonia and other preventable illnesses.
