Afghanistan water shortage displaces thousands in Badghis

An Al Jazeera exclusive report on the drought forcing three million people into makeshift camps in Afghanistan.

    More than three million people are suffering from a devastating drought in Afghanistan.

    There’s been no rain for months and crops have all failed, forcing families to leave their homes.

    The UN and aid groups have been able to provide some water, but they need food and medicine. Aid workers say the situation is now at a critical stage.

    Al Jazeera's Tony Birtley reports from Badghis province, one of the worst-hit areas in Afghanistan.
