Two women are silhouetted as they walk past a burning bush in Awasi village, Soroti, located in eastern Uganda.
Soroti is going through an uncharacteristic climate variation in recent times. While extreme temperatures are normal in this part of the country, most of 2016 had an extended dry season. As a result, farmer's plans were disrupted, crops dried up, animals continue to feed less because of limited pastures.
The projections aren't healthy either. A continuation of the current prolonged drought is expected to cause more damage. Already, government has warned of an impending food shortage in Soroti and the surrounding districts, asking people to plan carefully.
