Actual humanitarian situation and forecast

Women and children, as always, have been hardest hit. School children are dropping out due to the drought while women and girls who bear the responsibility to fetch water for their families have to travel further to access this precious commodity. The drought has also caused separation in pastoralist households whose male members have migrated further and further away in search of pasture and water for their livestock. All of these factors continue to put women and children at more risk of violence and abuse
