Food Shortage

In many parts of Kenya people do suffer a lot especially from poverty.This caused from drought and famine which in turn kill many people and their properties. Research has been done and it shows people will still suffer for more coming years. The government had tried to solve this problem but unfortunately it cant due to lack of resources.In the year 2009 there was a drought as in many people lost their lives, animals and even plants.Then merged the stakeholders of the country financial organizations like banks, tourism companies, transport and communication commission together with some international organizations campaigned and urge those who have to help others and they contributed and gave out food. Also through prayers rain came as the year end.
