Kenyans should do­nate food to drought-hit Kil­ifi

The Star (Kenya) - - Voices -

The drought in Kil­ifi is hav­ing very neg­a­tive im­pacts, es­pe­cially on women, ex­pec­tant moth­ers and chil­dren. Although the gov­ern­ment is do­ing a com­mend­able job by sup­ply­ing re­lief food, it is not enough for ev­ery­one. As such, well-wish­ers and Kenyans in gen­eral should come for­ward and do­nate wa­ter and food. And be­cause wa­ter is a big prob­lem, gov­ern­ment and non-gov­ern­men­tal or­gan­i­sa­tions should sink bore­holes or build dams. We do not want a sit­u­a­tion where chil­dren can’t go to school be­cause of hunger, or peo­ple starve to death when we can help.
