The Turkana region in northern Kenya is facing one of the worst droughts in living memory with more than 1m people in need of food aid.
Local politicians are warning that the death toll will start rising unless urgent action is taken.
The drought comes despite the area sitting on a massive underground water reservoir that has the potential to supply Kenya with water for the next 70 years.
