Kenya

In Kenya, 2.6 million people are facing drought. In northern areas, where for years we have worked with communities to help build their resilience to droughts, we are helping communities repair their wells to ensure families can survive this unusually severe emergency.

Oxfam has rehabilitated wells in Wajir and Turkana counties that are now providing clean water to 282,652 people. Over the next six months, we plan to reach 600,000 people with cash assistance, clean water through repaired water points, as well as information on good hygiene through radio programs and community mobilizers. We will also provide families with items like jerry cans and buckets so they can store water safely as well as chlorine to treat water and soap for good hygiene.


We need to scale up those efforts, and we urgently need your support to help save lives.
