A parent's struggle
Daniel, a father from Kenya, was struggling to buy food to feed his family. He received a delivery of food from Plan International.
Plan International Kenya has been providing humanitarian assistance to affected communities in Kilifi County. Most families can only afford one meal a day since drought took hold of the country, following low rainfall for two consecutive years.
How your support has helped
With your donations, we were able to provide:
- Life-saving food packages containing maize and pulses to the most vulnerable and affected children and families.
- Support to Therapeutic Feeding Centres in high-risk areas, to screen and treat children and their families for symptoms of malnutrition.
- Nutritious lunches for children, to reduce school dropout, especially for girls, among drought-affected schools.
- Improved access to safe water, and better hygiene and sanitation practices, to reduce diseases such as diarrhoea.
