Responding to Kenya's Hunger Crisis - Situation Report #13
World Vision Kenya has reached more than 300,000 people affected by drought in November 2017.
Still, there's more work to do. World Vision continues to be concerned that:
- More than 420,000 children are malnourished
- 3.4 million people are in need of emergency food assistance
- 2.9 million people require health care assistance
- 3.5 million people need clean water, sanitation and hygiene support
- More than 170,000 children are not attending school as a result of drought
To respond, World Vision aims to provide 400,000 more people with life-saving and life-changing assistance in the coming months.
Due to the ongoing drought and conflict, World Vision Kenya is requesting an additional US $19 million to reach people who urgently need emergency assistance to access food, clean water, health care, nutrition, child protection, income generating activities, shelter and education.
