Drought destroying young lives

In Turkana, Kenya, Peter and his younger brother Samson hunt for squirrels and stones: squirrels to eat and stones to mark their mother’s grave.

In April, their mum died of hunger. Before that their father was killed in a cattle raid. Now the boys, just 12 and 10 years old, are orphans.

“The drought has finished all the animals,” said Samson. “Now it is killing people.”

Community leader, Christopher Amodoi, explained how the drought had devastated his community. “Our main enemy is hunger,” he said.

Samson is teaching Peter how to create a squirrel trap so they have something to eat. “We have no other food in the house,” said Peter.

Thankfully Peter and Samson will benefit from a food assistance project in Turkana. “They will be among the first to be registered,” said Christopher.


Helping the most vulnerable

World Vision is on the ground responding right now. In Turkana, we’re partnering with the United Nations World Food Programme to provide food assistance and livelihoods programs.

The World Food Programme is providing monthly provisions of maize, beans and vegetable oil so families have enough food to eat while waiting for their crops grow.

On food distribution day, community members ensure that food is also provided to the most vulnerable – including orphans like Peter and Samson, as well as widows and the elderly.

A World Vision livelihoods project is teaching farmers new and improved farming techniques, and empowering them to take ownership of their lives and their land.

^ Please note, amounts shown are indicative (based on contracts in the 12-month period prior to October 2016). The price is calculated based on the cost it takes to deliver the food to all benefiting countries, divided by the total number of people receiving a monthly ration of food. Should funds raised for the Multiplying Gift Appeal exceed the amount required to fund World Vision’s work in delivering food assistance and other essential supplies provided by the World Food Programme and other United Nations agencies, World Vision will use the excess funds in other work to help communities respond to the long-term effects of food insecurity.

Around the world, too many families struggle to feed their children a nutritious meal. Through forces beyond their control, like drought or conflict, food is simply unavailable. This has a devastating impact on children’s health and wellbeing.

Eradicating hunger and malnutrition is one of the world’s most critical challenges. But we’re working on a global solution. And you have a vital role to play.
