Aden, a three-year-old Somali refugee with his father Abdille, recovers at the stabilisation centre at Hagadere refugee area on August 2, 2011 after arriving a week earlier on the verge of death from severe malnutrition. Aden lost his mother to starvation during the journey from southern Somalia and is now recovering remarkably at the centre, run by the International Rescue Committee [IRC] supported by UNICEF, after his father, grandmother and two siblings managed to get at the Dadaab refugee complex in Kenya's north-easterly province. An estimated 3.7 million people in Somalia -- around a third of the population -- are on the brink of starvation and  aid agencies are stretched in trying to cope with a daily influx of Somali's escaping not only drought but the al-Shabab extremists who have turned taken advantage of the famine to forcefully arrest and recruit men trying to escape the famine..
