In Kenya, severe drought and COVID-19’s secondary socioeconomic repercussions have hampered children’s access to basic needs. On September 9, 2021, Kenya’s President proclaimed the ongoing severe drought a national calamity, with 2.1 million people facing food insecurity by August 2021. Acute malnutrition affects 653,000 children aged 6 to 59 months, with 142,000 of them severely malnourished.
In general, a quarter of a million Muslims (ethnic minority) residing in Kenya (non-Muslim country) experience various difficulties in proclaiming their business to profit their families due to poverty economics following many years of natural disasters such as floods and drought.
Last year was a critical phase for Kenyans with multiple crises that causes severe food insecurity which has no sign that can be resolved in a short time. Ramadan would be hard for the minority muslims in Uganda without food and water support from us.
Join us to help muslims in Kenya fight hunger and survive throughout Ramadan with enough food for their iftar.
