There are two harvests each year in Uganda. This year, because of a lack of rain, the first harvest failed. There will be a second harvest in the near future, although it is expected to be less plentiful than normal.

While this will relieve the acute food shortage in parts of Uganda, a number of countries in Africa are affected. A serious drought has been inked to El Nino. Climate change affects all of us, but for some it can be a matter of life and death.
