Here is an excerpt from the Mennonite Central Committee's East Africa drought response.
The drought and food crisis remain at emergency levels in many regions in East Africa with over 13 million people now affected.

"This is a long-term crisis,” said Bruce Guenther, program coordinator, Food, Disaster and Material Resources department. “Many of the people affected depend on agriculture and livestock activities for their livelihoods. The severity of this humanitarian crisis will affect these families for years to come.”
