report Tearfund

Dangerous levels of malnutrition are increasing in Somalia and many more people are likely to become famine-stricken, according to latest assessments.

In some parts of the drought-affected country, more than 50 per cent of the population are suffering acute malnutrition. Overall, 3.7 million people need food urgently.

Five areas of central and southern Somalia were declared famine zones in July but the Famine Early Warning Systems is warning more areas could join that list over the next four to six weeks.

report Tearfund

Tearfund partners are increasing the transportation of water to livestock farmers in northern Kenya to help them through severe drought conditions.

A thousand pastoralists who rely on cattle for their livelihoods are receiving supplies in the Turkana and West Pokot areas.

Poor rains have dried up pasture and left many farmers with dead or dying livestock, drastically hitting their income and ability to buy food.

As well as supplying water our partner Christian Reformed World Relief Committee (CRWRC) is also planning to repair existing boreholes and water pans.
