In 2017, World Vision's response to Kenya's Hunger Crisis has reached 400,000 people. We have provided:
- 247,000 people with food security support and assistance to earn an income
- 135,000 children and their mothers with nutrition support
- 97,000 with clean water and sanitation services
- 26,000 with food assistance
- 21,000 with education and child protection activities
- 2,400 with essential relief items
- 2,000 with peacebuilding activities
Going forward, we're hoping to another 400,000 people in the next six months of the response.
We continue to be concerned that:
- The ongoing drought continues to affect children and their families
- 3.4 million Kenyans continue to be in need of food assistance
- Delivering assistance is challenged by conflict, poor weather and poor transportation networks
- The response is underfunded
World Vision Kenya is requesting an additional $19 million US to reach more than 400,000 people during the next six months.
