For the past several months there has been a drought in East Africa that has devastated communities that rely on agriculture to sustain them. Food and water are in very short supply and many are unable to access them. In Suswa and Mwaani, 2 villages that The Village Net operates in Kenya, the affects of this drought have been significant. Many families have no food or water and their ability to purchase supplies has diminished as they are unable to produce the crops to generate income.
The Village Net has started an emergency food and water distribution project that will provide the most impacted people in each village with food and water. Supplies are distributed to the neediest so that they are able to survive the drought season.
In each village, at least 10 to 12 families will be able to survive the drought season. This means that 100 people will be affected.
