Kenya's Hunger Problem

 Today, 4.4 million Kenyans are on the doorstep of hunger with 1.2 million one step away from a catastrophe because of Kenya’s worst drought in 40 years.

“We lived off milk and meat,” recalls Alice, “but with time, water and pasture started dwindling in the once productive hills and our livestock started to die.” 

“Five consecutive failed rainy seasons have decimated more than 2.5 million livestock, the main source of food and income - meaning that children, mothers and the elderly don’t have milk – a critical source of nutrients for livestock keepers,” says Felix Okech, WFP’s Head of Relief and Refugees Operations in Kenya.
