“Hunger is a major problem here, children don’t have milk and we don’t have food and water. Where we fetch water from is very far and it is dirty. We are really suffering because of this drought.” 21 year old Dabo Boru, a mother of 3 children, talks about the devastating impact of the drought on her family and community.
