Providing safe water to families in Kenya
The situation in Kenya
Kenya has been in the grip of the worst drought in living memory for almost two years. In February 2017, the Kenyan government declared it a national disaster. The situation since then hasn't improved and 50% of Kenya’s poorest are still without any access to safe drinking water.
I wish to donate:
3.5 million people affected
Meet Budha Tura, just one of the 3.5 million people without access to safe water. She's a 51-year-old widowed mother of six. Her nearest water point is now a twelve-hour journey away and with her donkeys no longer strong enough to make the trek, she must go on foot alone and collect only what she can carry. As a result, Budha often relies on potentially deadly water from dirty puddles left behind by brief and unexpected rain showers.
Concern was able to help Budha and her six children by supplying them with water purification tablets, making it safe for her and her family to drink. One tablet can sterilise 20 litres of water in 30 minutes, preventing diseases such as cholera and diarrhoea.
We need your help
We need your help in providing water purification tablets to 170,000 families across Kenya. Please donate what you can and help families such as Budha’s survive the worst drought in living memory.
