Hanifa* is a mother of four. Her youngest daughter, one year old Barika* was severely malnourished when Save the Children first met her in February 2017. Hanifa’s family has been badly affected by the drought in the north of Kenya, in Mandera County. Without rainfall, the family’s livestock began to die off and the remaining goats no longer produced milk due to lack of pasture. This is affected the family’s income and getting food for the family became increasingly difficult.
