Food Crisis in Africa

Daniel Kenya

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.

This has put a smile on my family's face, if only for a short time, we thank all of you who thought of us.

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.
