Over 30 million people in southern Africa are at risk of starvation, according to the United Nations. It follows a crippling drought worsened by the El Nino weather phenomenon, which devastated crops across the region. Countries like Zimbabwe, Malawi and Mozambique have all issued drought alerts in recent months. South Africa on the other hand describes the drought as its worst in more than 100 years.
