David Harewood on the shocking results of drought in Kenya

You recently made a film with Cafod, the Catholic Agency For Overseas Development, to raise awareness about climate change. How did that come about?

I’ve worked with Cafod for a number of years as an ambassador, and six years ago I travelled to northern Kenya to see the effects of climate change in the communities there. It was just mile after mile of complete devastation. There were just clouds of orange dust, and we went through village after village and all we saw was dead cattle and dead goats covered in orange dust.
