Namibia Hard-Hit by Drought

Namibia experiences the worst drought in three decades and this has caused hunger and malnutrition in children

The International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC) says that desert-hardy Namibians, overwhelmed by the worst drought to hit their country in 30 years, are surviving off wild fruits with no harvest in sight until March 2014.
 
IFRC’s Hanna Butler, who recently visited Kunene, one of the worst hit regions in northern Namibia, points out that, "A lot of the people I met had nothing in their food stores, absolutely nothing."
 
Butler warns that the crisis is set to worsen since Namibia only has one harvest a year and the next is not due until March 2014.
