The devastating drought in east Africa has left 3.5 million people in Kenya without food. People living in the slums are in desperate need.

Dominic Meteka, who lives in Korogocho slum, said: "When there is rain, there is food. But there has been no rain. And there is no food…If the people here can get support, I know we can uplift ourselves from this crisis."
