Emergency Food Distribution in Kenya

by The Village Net

Summary

The drought in East Africa has had a devastating impact on people already struggling to provide food for their families. The Village Net operates in 2 villages in Kenya and both are suffering from lack of food and water supply. The majority of people that rely on agriculture are not able to generate income to provide food and supplies for their families. The Village Net has started an emergency food and water distribution program to help those most impacted in each village.

Challenge

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.

Solution

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.

Long-Term Impact

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.
