The Story

Unprecedented drought has left many people hungry.

"Kenya is facing one of its worst droughts in decades. Families are camped by dry wells, livestock has become too skinny to be eaten or sold, and armed conflict is flaring up between cattle grazers in the north."

I have to walk very far to find water, now, and there is not enough for our crops to grow. It is becoming difficult to provide even one meal for the children and I fear for their health.

Drought across Kenya has made 2.6 million people food insecure and has seen a five-fold increase in food prices, as well as conflict around water points and an increase in malnutrition and diseases. Regions in the north of the country are particularly badly affected.

Farms and wells can rescue these families while helping to birth new churches

Obed was really struggling with life and his family was suffering. When we met him, he could not care for his family in this current environment. After being part of one of our farm projects, he requested to start something on his land. We allowed him and trained and now as we speak he has enough food and also reaching out to his community which is called Ikolomani. He has started over 10 groups of disciples who are reaching out to others.

Background

The house church network in Kenya has seen thousands of people baptized and are committed to spiritual transformation through disciple making movements.

But drought is effecting thousands including children who are vulnerable to disease.

How did the situation with famine in Africa get like this?

It’s really been the culmination of several disruptive events that have led the affected communities to where they are now. Many of the countries in the region also have struggled with extreme poverty for decades and lack basic infrastructure to help their struggling families.

These people facing drought and hunger aren’t passive victims simply waiting for charities to save them. They are hard working people willing to do what it takes to help their families. They are willing to farm and they are committed, even in these hard times, to reaching out to others who do not know the love of Christ.

Yes, please let the farms go

Yes, please let the farms go on. I totally agree with your approach to helping people provide themselves and multiply spiritually at the same time. You may just continue to draw 45 USD every month like you did so far.
