Million Guatemalans face hunger through drought

Monday, August 17, 2015

Nearly 1 million people in Guatemala are struggling to feed themselves as poor rainfall has led to drought and shrunken harvests, worsening hunger among the poor, the U.N. Food and Agriculture Organization said.

Linked to the El Nino weather phenomenon, this year's drought has been very hard on subsistence farmers living in Central America's dry corridor that runs through parts of Guatemala, El Salvador, Honduras and Nicaragua.
