The semi-arid region of Kenya where this project is located has been plagued by prolonged drought for the past several years, worsening the chronic hunger and malnutrition problems. This year unexpected heavy rains hit the region. The seedlings of maize, beans and other crops were washed away, and another season of hunger began. Those who suffer most, of course, are the poorest who have no other source of income to purchase food. The Global Health Partnerships project that feeds hungry children has just added the 18th family to the list of recipients who receive a monthly food ration, as well as some clothing and support for school fees for the children.
More families can benefit from this project if funds become available. NOW YOUR CONTRIBUTION TO RELIEVE HUNGER CAN DO MUCH MORE WITH MATCHING FUNDS! For one day on October 9 starting at 12:01 am (10 pm Oct 8 Mountain time) GlobalGiving will match your donation.
The relief from the hunger and malnutrition can be provided by GHP very effectively and efficiently. Over 95% of the donations that are received by GHP go directly into program services!
