Jill Biden Calls for Global Effort to Reduce Drought in Kenya


US First Lady Jill Biden has called for more Western countries to join in the fight against drought in Kenya, saying it is a humanitarian crisis that requires attention similar to that given to the Russian-Ukrainian war.

Speaking after meeting with drought victims in Kajiado County, Biden stated that the US had contributed over 70% of relief funds to the region and needed other countries to join the global effort.

The UN has warned that the region is facing a humanitarian crisis, with over 2.1 million people in Kenya requiring food assistance due to the drought.

Biden’s visit highlighted the need for more aid and support to the affected communities.
