The crisis in the Horn of Africa continues to worsen as food supplies run out. Children are dying because of a lack of food and clean water.
In parts of Northern Kenya, 37% of children are suffering from acute malnutrition, far above the 15% World Health Organisation’s threshold for an emergency situation.
This year, the area’s rainfall average was less than one-third of the average from the last 15 years. In Kenya, water is so scarce that families are walking up to 15 kilometres to find water sources. Combined with a 60 per cent increase in the price of maize it means that families are on the move in search of food. The effect of the ongoing drought is expected to get worse.
It a vital thing that we as the world start to do something, we have therefore started a cause and we are looking for people who can donate 20$ per month to help bring into a halt this big problem that is facing East Africa. You are open to click our donate link and give any amount which will be appreciated for, if you can also sponsor a kid you are welcome to do so since we have many kids that cant afford education because of their family financial background.

Kenya is experiencing one of the worst droughts in recent years. Northern Kenya is particularly affected and the government has declared the drought in this region a national disaster. The poor March to May 2011 long rains, coming successively after the failed October to December 2010, have greatly undermined the food security situation in the country. Up to 3.5 million people are affected by the drought and their plight has been worsened by high food prices resulting from both local and global factors.
And kids are suffering since this issue is affecting every one and mostly those that are less fortunate
