A combination of drought and conflict has left over 16 million people across four countries in East Africa in need of humanitarian assistance. The UN declared famine in parts of Unity State of South Sudan on 20 February 2017. People in Somalia and parts of Kenya and Ethiopia are also suffering already because of malnutrition.
