Crisis in eastern Africa worsens

We call out to Amanda Lindhout in eastern Kenya. She is observing one of three camps that make up the overall Dadaab refugee camp, the largest in the world. Right now it's overflowing with people who are hungry and ill. Most of the people have come from Somalia, some of them walking for days. Lindhout is a former freelance journalist and now the founder of a Canadian NGO that supports Somali women.

"The stories we're hearing about the journeys taken here are just unbelievable."

Lindhout describes the scene on the ground and the stories she's hearing about the journey from villages to the camp.
