WGEP helps scholar families affected by famine

With the Horn of Africa drought and famine affecting 3.75 million Kenyans, WGEP is helping affected scholars and families in the Tharaka region with temporary food relief. We are distributing food at our local community partner offices to 100 families, giving out 20 kg of maize and 20 kg of beans per family. WGEP Kenya anticipates that they will be assissting a total of 600 people.
"The rains came in good time, and if they continue with the same stability, we hope there will be harvest in January," WGEP Kenya Project Coordinator Aniceta Kiriga says. "In the meantime, thank you for being there for us."
Our scholars and their families find themselves at the fringes of their societies, and most vulnerable to the effects of natural disasters. All of us at WGEP wish to thank you for your support of our mission and for helping us affect lives.
