According to the United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA), Kenya’s Arid and Semi-Arid Lands (ASAL) region has experienced four back-to-back below-average rainy seasons, leading to the longest drought in at least 40 years and leaving at least 4.2 million Kenyans in need of humanitarian assistance.
Optiven Foundation is keenly complementing both Government and other non-governmental organizations in reducing the direct effects of this drought, through it’s Feed One More program.
That is why this charity arm of Optiven focused on food distribution in the arid part of Nyeri, Kieni, today. “We want to thank Kenyans of good will, and in particular our customers, for partnering with us and thus enabling us to support food stricken Kenyans to get a meal on their table,” said George Wachiuri, Optiven Foundation Trustee and Chairman.
Through this initiative by the foundation, hundreds of Kenyans in Kajiado, Laikipia, parts of Nairobi and now Kieni have been able to benefit from the food distribution drive. “The drive is now all set to head to Samburu County, which is one part of the country that is extremely affected by this ongoing drought”.
