report American Red Cross

Namibia is suffering from severe drought conditions after one of the driest rainy seasons in decades, and the American Red Cross is helping with efforts to deal with food shortages.

The lack of available water is causing a strain on local farmers resulting in food shortage and loss of livestock. Cholera and malnutrition cases are increasing due to the reduction of safe water sources and poor sanitation and hygiene practices.
