As part of our efforts to fight hunger in most parts of the Country, Optiven Foundation will be giving relief assistance as we address the food insecurity and drought due to the short rains and insufficient water across many part of the Country. As stated at the Feed One More launch by the Foundation’s Chairman and Trustee Mr. George Wachiuri last year, we have a duty as Kenyans to feed our fellow citizenry in drought-stricken parts of the country.
The drought threat is real and if we can partner to add “One More Drop” of assistance whether as individuals, corporates, churches, private and public organizations; we would make a big difference in addressing this calamity. Every coin counts. You can skip a meal to feed our fellow Kenyans through this ‘Feed One More’ initiative. According to the assessment conducted by the National Drought Management Authority (NDMA) in December 2017 statistics show that about 3.4 million people mostly in Arid and Semi-Arid Land (ASAL) counties are facing food insecurity as a result of prolonged drought and failed rainfall.
NDMA have appealed for partnership and recommended an extension of relief programmes in ten (10) ASAL counties to April 2018. The worst hit areas are Kajiado, Turkana, Kilifi, Garissa, Wajir, Isiolo, Tana River, Mandera, Marsabit, Garissa. Other counties also affected are Mandera, Marsabit, Kitui, and Taita Taveta. You and I have a duty to feed our fellow Kenyans. You can choose to skip a meal to Feed One More.
