Watch a Video from Hubbie of Womankind Kenya

In northeastern Kenya, Somali families fleeing famine and war have settled in communities that are themselves facing face severe drought and hunger.

Womankind Kenya, in partnership with MADRE, provides emergency food aid and medical assistance to women and families.

In the video below, Hubbie Hussein al-Haji of Womankind Kenya, speaks to us about what International Women's Day means to her, Womankind’s famine relief efforts and what they hope to accomplish in the next year.

Thanks to your support, Womankind Kenya has provided thousands of at-risk families with water, maize, beans, cooking oil and calorie-dense food to combat severe malnutrition. Your generosity helps ensure that crucial aid is delivered to Somali families struggling to survive.
