ACT Appeal Kenya Famine Relief - AFKE-02 (Revision 1)


Appeal Target : US$ 4,098,046
Balance Requested from ACT Network: US$ 1,708,358
Geneva, 21 August 2000

Dear Colleagues,

The Christian Communities Services of MT. Kenya East (CCS) have recently successfully completed their relief assistance program under the AFKE01 appeal. But because of the persisting drought situation in Kenya which has caused severe famine resulting in severe malnutrition and even death CCS is requesting to continue assisting the most vulnerable in their area of operation. As they were not included in the AFKE-02 appeal when it was issued in July this year, the appeal is being revised to include them. The issue of proper coordination by all the ACT members in Kenya when responding to a national emergency has been raised and will be further followed up by the ACT CO.

No other changes have been made to the appeal except for the inclusion of the CCS proposal and, for the sake of brevity details of the other ACT implementing members in the appeal will not be repeated here. Details can be obtained from the original appeal issued on 10 July, 2000.

The Christian Community Services MT. Kenya East proposes assistance in the following areas;

  • Relief food distribution
  • Provision of drugs and other medicines to cure common ailments associated with starvation
  • Water & Sanitation
  • Agricultural seeds distribution.
