    Published on

    On Friday, Second Lady Dorcas Rigathi and the Kenya Red Cross Society launched a relief effort to deliver food donated by churches to residents in Narok County who have been affected by the drought.

    Asha Mohammed, the secretary general of the Kenya Red Cross Society, presided over the ceremony, which took place at the society’s offices in South C, Nairobi.

    I am here as a human being affected by the suffering of others to appeal to you, Kenyans, so that we may stand together and be our brothers’ keeper and rise to the necessity of preserving the lives of those in need,

    Dorcas stated.

    As many as 2,500 households in the area have been affected by the drought and would greatly benefit from the food that has been donated.

    Geoffrey Kipng’etich, governor of the Kenya Red Cross association, expressed gratitude to the second lady and all those who contributed.

    A recent survey indicated that 4.35 million Kenyans are going to bed hungry as a result of the ongoing drought crisis.

    Laikipia, Tana River, Tharaka Nithi, Mandera, Garissa, Turkana, Wajir, Samburu, and Marsabit are all counties that have been affected by the drought and are now in the alert phase.

    The Kenya Red Cross Society has shown willingness to work with interested parties to coordinate relief efforts and assist those in need.

    Soon after, the counties of Isiolo, Makueni, and Nyeri will get food relief packages.
