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 helped 200,000 people and 1,145 primary schools access clean water, and has reached 30,000 with messages designed to promote good hygiene as a way to avoid disease. Using an electronic cash transfer system, 32,200 people have received cash to buy food and clean water.
We need to scale up those efforts, and we urgently need your support to help save lives.
