Severe Food Crisis

“The Horn of Africa is facing a severe food crisis following a prolonged drought in the region and is affecting about 10 million people. The drought has been termed as the worst in over 50 years and Kenyans in the arid and semi arid parts have not been spared either. Over 4 million Kenyans are at risk of losing their lives and H.E. the President has declared the current drought situation a National disaster.  In a show of solidarity with the people of Kenya, we call upon Kenyans in France, Portugal and Serbia and well wishers to contribute towards a kitty that would go towards complementing the Government’s efforts to alleviate this situation. We request that contributions be channelled to the Embassy for onward transmission to Nairobi.”
