African famine

A woman walks past carcasses of cattle in the drought-stricken Eladow area in Wajir, northeastern Kenya, Aug. 4.

The drought, the worst in decades, has affected millions of people across the Horn of Africa.

Natural disasters around the world this year prompted prayers, charitable giving and outreach.
