Angola is facing its most severe drought in the last 40 years, impacting the food security of 1.6 million people in southern Angola, including more than 110,000 children under the age of five who are facing acute malnutrition, according to the World Food Programme (WFP). In addition to the drought, rising food prices and a plague of locusts have made millions of people dependent on urgent humanitarian aid.
