This time last year East Africa was in the grips of the worst drought for 60 years. 13 million people were affected.
Zipporah, pictured below, became one of the faces of the crisis, when we told the story of how she was binding her stomach with rope to stave off hunger. But now, just one year on her life has changed completely.
Thanks to our supporters ActionAid was able to deliver food, water and other vital support to over 375,000 people. Zipporah was one of them.
