Food Shortages Put Millions of Kenyans in Peril
AP: WAJIR, Kenya – Malnourished children cried feebly in a hospital in this drought-stricken corner of Kenya, too weak to even make themselves heard as aid agencies warned Tuesday that they do not have money to feed millions of Kenyans hit by food shortages.
Kenya’s government announced a day earlier that the number of Kenyans at risk from the food crisis has increased to 3.5 million from 2.5 million. The number of districts affected by drought is expected to rise to 37 from 17, just over half of Kenya’s 70 districts. | storyYour support matters…
