The Horn of Africa, a region encompassing Djibouti, Eritrea, Ethiopia, Kenya, and Somalia, is facing the most prolonged drought since late 2020. It has caused acute food insecurity conditions for 18.6 million people, acute malnutrition for 3.2 million children and pregnant and lactating women, and water sources to dry up or diminish in quality. USAID Administrator Samantha Power announced nearly $1.2 billion in additional humanitarian funding for the drought response. This funding will support emergency food assistance, nutrition support, agricultural support, and WASH interventions.
The Prophet Reward Foundation is engaging international grantmakers to create a Disaster Response and Resiliency Network to bring efforts together in a cohesive group to share with donors for disaster response relief efforts. As the Covid-19 pandemic continues to unfold in different ways, there is a dire need to step up humanitarian support to the most vulnerable people in the community. Through your help, we have reached over 1,000 families supplying them with survival food packs. Millions of Kenyans are facing numerous challenges due to the impact of Covid-19, and many residents in the slums where we operate are unemployed or depend on daily casual work. To help, donations of dry foods like rice, cereals, maize flour, porridge flour, cooking oil, soap, face masks, etc. can be sent to our mobilizing food bank for distribution to the needy families in our community.
