Childslife State of emergency Kenia

Kenya, 10/11/2021. The state of emergency has been declared in 29 counties in Kenya. Here, hardly any rain fell in the past 2 rainy seasons. This in combination with the consequences of the corona pandemic means that over 2 million Kenyans are facing acute food and water shortages. Children are at risk of malnutrition.
Life-saving measures must be taken urgently.

To address this current drought crisis, ChildsLife has compiled a list of ten schools in Makueni and Kajiado provinces, in the affected area, that need support with the distribution of clean water and emergency food.
