The food situation in Kenya’s arid and semi-arid areas is bleak. Families in Kenya are facing severe food shortage and livestock deaths due to extreme vegetation deficit. As at February 2017, the percentage of children at risk due to malnutrition increased to 20.1%.
In Lamu and Tana-River Counties, where World Concern operates, the situation has been further complicated by human-wildlife due to scarcity of water and vegetation.
Being the only fresh water lake in Mpeketoni, Lake Kenyatta plays an important role in both community livelihood and supporting the wildlife ecosytem. As the lake dries up, human-wildlife conflict is escalating in the area.
On a year that will be remembered as the worst in a generation unless we intervene now, World Concern is responding.
