In 2011, the world’s worst food crisis devastated east Africa. It put 12 million people in Kenya, Somalia, and Ethiopia in urgent need of humanitarian assistance. The region’s worst drought in 60 years scorched pastures and killed huge numbers of livestock. We’ve already helped 800,000 people, thanks to your support.
This year, east Africa was struck by the worst drought in 60 years. Even before this, it was tough to survive in Nairobi’s polluted and overcrowded slums. But now, families are living on the edge. The drought and food crisis has been spreading silently to the slums of Nairobi and other cities in east Africa and it is now at emergency levels.
Despite being located in the centre of a drought area in Kenya, Moyale has been much less affected by the emergency than its neighbouring villages. This is thanks to the work Concern has been doing there since 2010.
