Climate Change Cripples Kenya

Extended periods of drought have plagued Kenya for years. Climate strongly affects the country’s food supply and economy, which can fluctuate frequently depending on the rain and security situations in the region. Food security in Kenya has deteriorated in recent years, due to below-normal harvests that followed a combination of poor rains and flooding. An estimated 1.3 million people are acutely food insecure in Kenya—more than twice as many as were in need in 2016.

Food insecurity is high levels of malnutrition. Kenyan children, mothers and elderly are particularly susceptible to hunger-related illnesses and death.

With all this considered, one thing remains clear: The people of Kenya are resilient and, with the support of donors like you, families in need there can access opportunities to break the chains of poverty and move toward success.

Here’s just a sampling of recent efforts for families in need across Kenya

  • Providing drought-prone households with financial support and urgent aid in times of emergency
  • Opening better access to primary health care, education, clean water, and more to vulnerable communities
  • Increasing agro-pastoral income through livelihood programming
