An area the size of Ireland, Turkana used to experience drought every 15 to 20 years.
However, from the late 1990s onwards, that reduced to every five years and, more and more, the devastating effects of global warming are resulting in lost lives.
“We used to drink milk, we used to eat meat and we had a lot of harvest from the forest. Life was so good,” pastoralist Atiir Kataboi told us.
“But now, things have really changed since the drought came in… it has cleared all the animals, all the livestock, the fruits of the land. The trees have also withered, there is nothing that comes from them. Everything has dried up.”
So, what can you do to help?
