The crisis in Turkana is critical

Turkana, located in the northern region of Kenya, has experienced five consecutive seasons of drought.

Your urgent help is needed NOW!

People with disabilities need our URGENT help

Young Dahabo is just 19.

Her family have lost everything. Their livestock are all gone. The local water source has dried up. Their crops have failed. Again, and again.

They have nothing. Only hope…

“The drought has become extremely bad. We don’t know what will become of the people because the drought is so severe. We are just living on hope.

Hope will not bring life-saving food, water and medicine into the homes of people with disabilities. It will not provide them with mobility aids to help them join queues for food.

But hope is all people like Dahabo have left.
