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.
