Africa food crisis
On the dusty barren plains of Mandera in north-east Kenya I saw sights I will never forget. I watched humans and animals drink the same dirty, disease-infested water, desperate to quench their thirst. I saw rotten animal carcasses scattered everywhere with frightening frequency.
The villagers and pastoralists for whom this is home carry a look of fear and anguish. Every day they watch helplessly as their livestock die. They have dug as deep as they can to find water and what they find is not fit to drink. But they do not have the luxury of choice.
