Drastic Weather Causes Instability for MCP

The weather forecast in Kenya has been out of control. They have had many dry days which hasn't helped the crops, but now they are experiencing intense thunderstorms and rain. Thunderstorms are beautiful from a distance but they can cause serious damage. Especially since the houses that many of our guardians own are mud huts with grass hatches as roofs. Grass Hatch is extremely flammable and since the houses are made of dried mud, they can easily be washed away by heavy amounts of rain. All of this causes extreme stress on each member of the household, especially the children because they can’t focus on their studies and exams are coming up! We would like to be prepared to help those suffering because they will need our assistance from these storms very soon here. Thank you for your ongoing support.

Adequate nutrition is too difficult

Good nutrition is key to good health, but difficult to access for the vulnerable populations. The drought has been rampant in this region for well over a decade and famine has persisted. Crops are difficult to grow without adequate water supply, and children often go hungry. Over half of the MCC kids live too far away from the Center to access the daily meals served there and so rely on supplemental bulk food provided to cook at home for proper nutrition. Sometimes this just isn’t enough for adequate nutrition.  We need help being able to provide for the children so they can be strong and healthy enough to get out of the poverty cycle their families are a part of. Asante for all your help.
