In Afar in northern Ethiopia people have been hoping, in vain, for much needed rainfall, as severe drought has ruined three consecutive harvests right across the country. More than 10 million people are in need of food aid.
The drought makes access to food difficult in this country, where up to 80 per cent of people make their living from farming.
The situation in Ethiopia has not been this severe since the mid-1980s, when famine led to more than 400,000 deaths.
