UPDATE ON INTERNATIONAL APPEAL FOR ASSISTANCE
FEWS bulletin -- April 25, 1997
The rains in most of Kenya signal a break from the prolonged dry spell of the past few months. According to Meteosat rainfall estimates and ground observations, rains were above normal during late March and early April in most of the country (figure 1).
The onset of the long rains has motivated widespread planting in most agricultural areas. Up to 80 percent of Kenya's maize is produced during the long-rains season, and up to 70 percent of this production comes from the western part of the country.

Kenya is facing mass hunger due to a severe drought in the country's northern and eastern regions. Some 2.5 million people are affected, and the drought is worsening. Church World Service has provided 20 metric tons of beans to two communities in southeast Kenya, and plans to provide beans, as well, to people in need in northeast Kenya near the Somali border. The beans are part of the assistance CWS is planning for 16,000 families over a three-month period until the next harvest.
In a remarkable turnaround, Ethiopia has gone from being a drought victim to a surplus producer of grain, some of which has just been purchased by WFP to assist drought victims in Kenya.
INTERNATIONAL APPEAL FOR ASSISTANCE
Louise Tunbridge, Special to The Christian Science Monitor
NAIROBI, KENYA -- Opposition politicians in Kenya say they have never had an easy time. Now, they add, the imposition of a "draconian" act by the government in the name of bringing the nation "relief," may give the president unfair advantage in the next elections.
With the successive failure of rains, this East African nation is experiencing the worst drought in years with urgent appeals for relief food being made.
