Kenya Drought Crisis: Every minute counts in the race to save lives
Right now in Kenya, an estimated 5.4 million people face starvation and extreme water shortages. Half of them are children. And the problem is set to double if action is not taken immediately.
Your urgent help is needed NOW!
You can help people with disabilities get access to emergency food, clean water, medical supplies and mobility aids like crutches and wheelchairs.
Why is Kenya in crisis?
Drought has been affecting Kenya for the past eight years, another failed rainy season in early 2022 caused this year’s harvest to fail too. Food prices are spiralling, livestock are dying in their tracks, and people are dying too.
COVID-19 has had a devastating impact on the Kenyan economy, resulting in job losses and supply-chain breakdown.
The war in Ukraine has made food shortages worse and distracted the attention of the international aid community. The world is looking the other way. But we cannot!
Every day, families are queuing for water from a source that is running dry
Imagine trying to keep your family alive on a few cupfuls of dirty water from the bottom of a dried-out hole.
People who live in this dry and dusty land are facing disaster. Their wells are running dry, their harvests have failed, and they desperately need our help.
Please help people with disabilities get access to the food, water and medical supplies they need to survive this deadly drought.
