comprehend hunger through imagery

“The Hunger” a magazine by Rankin


It has hardly rained in Kachoda, part of the district of Turkana in northern Kenya, for five years. There have been only two wet seasons since the drought started in 2004. The earth that once nurtured crops is now an endless patchwork of cracks, interrupted by the parched spindles of remaining trees. The people here, like an estimated 12.4 million others in Central Africa, are in the grip of a drought that has already claimed a great number of lives in the district. Rankin travelled with Oxfam to help launch their new GROW campaign, and meet the remarkable survivors of these severe conditions.
