LFT Kenya emergency a drought response
The government of Kenya has declared a national emergency with a crippling famine reminiscent of 2011 in the Horn of Africa in which threatened the livelihood of 9.5 million people.
People are already moving out of villages in search of survival.
Livestock are dying or dead. Men, women and children are going hungry and thirsty. Weak from hunger, they have to walk several times the usual distance in search of water which they are not guaranteed is there.
Many areas of the country have been badly affected.
Chakama in the North of the Kilifi region is one such area that has been badly affected by drought.
It is a location, comprised of 40 villages in one of the poorest of the 47 counties in Kenya.
The estimated population is about 15,000 in 4,000 households. The community lives under very harsh conditions and lacks access to essential needs including clean water, food, healthcare, electricity, and sanitation. It had been having little rain even before the short rains of 2020.
