Challenge

Millions of Kenyans have been gravely affected by the drought in the Horn of Africa. In response, thousands of malnourished men, women and children have moved to refugee camps in search of relief. However, with the influx of arrivals, relief food has not been readily available and starvation has become a severe and prevalent problem.

Solution

The Kenyans4Kenya campaign aims to reverse the suffering of millions of Kenyans who are facing starvation by implementing massive fundraising initiatives to mitigate the famine. Various Kenyan organizations and Kenya's leading media houses have joined forces to help raise support for fellow Kenyans. The project provides Kenyans with emergency food and water, and it will also rehabilitate or construct water infrastructure and initiate pilot agricultural projects in select areas of Kenya.

Long-Term Impact

By providing support to Kenyans during the current crisis, we not only allow them to experience relief from the drought in the present, but we are strengthening their communities to withstand future crises.
