Hungry Kenya

By a female, under 16 years old, in Lodwar, Kenya
Map of 
hungry Kenya Turkana has been a victim of drought and hunger every year.It started like a joke early January 2011 when the vegetattion started turning yellow and brown.Day after day it became drier and drier. Animals became thinner and thiner as people were wea.People no longer had an opportunity to move from place to place.A minimum of 5 people dying a day has been recorded. The red cross society intervined the problem by supporting food and anything available to secure our dear brothers lives in Turkana. Fellow Kenyans have been asked to also contribute anything to help Turkana generation. Something disappointing me is to see two young children suckling their already dead mother without help.Anybody willing should quickly save the children's life because i am unable to do so.
