Plan has launched an emergency appeal for US$720,000 to help ease food shortages in East Africa, as the region faces its worst drought in almost a decade.

Experts say the livelihood and survival of 28,000,000 people in parts of Kenya, Ethiopia and Uganda, is being threatened by the lack of rain and failing crops.
