In September, Eddie Izzard travelled to Kenya with UNICEF UK to film a documentary about the children's emergency in East Africa. The show, Eddie Izzard - Didn't We Fix Famine? was broadcast on ITV on Thursday 20 October.
These photos were taken on Eddie's documentary shoot. He also recorded an exclusive video diary for UNICEF. If you'd like to support UNICEF's work for children in East Africa, please donate by clicking on the red icon to the right. Thank you.

Eddie chats with 28-year-old mother Howa.
Hussein is a severely malnourished two-year-old, resting at the Ifo hospital in Dadaab, Kenya. He's being taken care of by UNICEF and local health workers. Children with severe malnutrition can recover in six weeks with the right treatment and therapeutic feeding.
Eddie meets children at the Dadaab camps in northeastern Kenya.
A bull's carcass is seen on the road to Dadaab, near northeastern Kenya. Families and farmers across East Africa have lost thousands of cattle as a result of the drought, endangering both their food supply and their economic livelihoods.
Eddie's holding a packet of nutritional Plumpy'nut peanut paste, at the Ifo hospital in the Dadaab camps. It might look modest, but peanut paste is a life-saving food: easily digestible and filled with calories and nutrients, peanut paste has helped to bring hundreds of thousands of severely malnourished children back to health.
Eddie talks with a UNICEF aid worker on the road to Garissa in northeastern Kenya. Since July, UNICEF has provided almost 10,000 metric tons of life-saving supplies by air and sea.
Eddie has a kickabout with some children at the Dadaab camps in Kenya. Across East Africa, four million children need urgent assistance, while more than 400,000 children are severely acutely malnourished.
