Over 23 million people are experiencing severe hunger in Kenya, Somalia, and Ethiopia, aid groups say. East Africa faces the worst drought in 40 years.

Russia’s invasion of Ukraine has disrupted food imports as well. Russia and Ukraine combined supply 90 percent of East Africa’s wheat. Russia is also one of the world’s leading fertilizer exporters.

World governments have seen the drought coming since 2020, but have done little to help. Aid groups, including Oxfam and Save the Children, blame this political failure for letting the crisis get so bad.
