Time short in Kenya food 'crisis'

This article details the threat of starvation faced by 3.5 million people in Kenya and 11 million people across the Horn of Africa. The United Nations (UN) maintains the impetus for this food shortage was five years of drought in the region; however poverty reduction is the “underlying concern.” The article warns of large scale deaths do to malnutrition if the donation shortfall of $189 million dollars is not met. Additionally, 1.7 million people in Somalia are confronting food shortage as well. Dominic Nutt, emergency specialist for Christian Aid, asserts: “This is a crisis on the verge of becoming a catastrophe.” “There are dead cattle everywhere and people have sold everything they have to buy food.” “These are the last few weeks that many people are going to be able to survive without help.”
