You Can Keep Kids Alive During Deadly Famine
What is it really like to live in a famine?
If you’re like most people, the word “famine" makes you think of African deserts or Biblical plagues. But you’re not sure what it really means.
Picture this: You have to cut down your kids to two meals a day…and then one. You used to give them a little milk from your goats or cows, but the animals’ milk has dried up, so you resort to black tea instead. Your little ones keep saying they’re hungry, and you try to find ways to tell them you’re all out of food - without scaring them. You start eating less so they can eat more, but now you’re dizzy all the time. You begin to really think the hunger will kill you.
Famine is a widespread hunger epidemic that affects children, mothers, and fathers. And it’s happening right now around Kinships in Kenya and Uganda.
More Kids Need Your Help
The rainy season has started, but the UN is predicting it will not be enough to make up for the severe droughts over the past few months. Food rations for hungry families have been cut in half. Pray for rain - and make it rain! You can help now by sending more meals. Just $45 will feed 30 kids for 30 days.
Kinship United has a highly effective network of dozens of outposts and Kinships in East Africa that currently care for hundreds of orphans and widows. They are strategically positioned for famine relief. Through generous partners we have access to millions of meals but we need your help to deliver.
