A nomination for Hubbie!

Since 2011, MADRE and Womankind Kenya have been hard at work providing emergency food aid and medical assistance to women and families most affected by the devastating drought and famine. We are happy to announce that Hubbie Hussein Al Hajj, director and founding member of Womankind Kenya has recently been recognized for her hard work. Earlier this month, she was nominated to the Executive Committee of Garissa County in the Ministry of Agriculture and Livestock! Reflecting on Hubbie’s nomination, Womankind Kenya stated: “[Hubbie’s nomination] speaks volumes for womankind, [and] tells us that [our] efforts and work is recognized even by the political leadership.” Many congratulations to Hubbie!

Together, MADRE and Womankind Kenya are continuing our work in the region, bringing mobile health clinics to Garissa County’s most vulnerable people, giving women and families affected by the famine access to health care. We look forward to bringing your more updates soon!
