"This 40-yearl-old man has been a herder all his life. Only 20 goats are left from what was once a herd of 250 goats and camels. It’s been a war of attrition over the years trying to hold on to his wealth. But the recurring nature of climatic disasters has made it difficult to recover. “Only God knows, but we wonder whether our way of life is in danger. If the droughts continue and the animals get fewer. This way of life is in real danger. That is our fear.” The ICRC disbursed cash to families in the village that were affected by the prolonged dry season this year."
