Help feeding ESITETI community (Kenya)

Objective: To limit drought-related malnutrition.

Subject: Food supply for 1200 people in a Maasai community.

Location: Kenya, Amboseli Region, Sub County of Loitokitok, ESITETI Community.

Duration: March 2017

Local partners: ACC CBO, Group Ranch Lalarashi.

Financial partner: GHA.

Description of activities: Food purchase, transport and distribution. 

Project status: COMPLETED.

We have received several requests for food aid because the drought in Kenya has spread to the foot of Kilimanjaro.

We cannot replace the large emergency NGOs, but we have mobilized to help the ISITETI community, which is very affected by the lack of water.

This community on the outskirts of the National Park has only part of the water of Lake Amboseli 20 km from their villages.

A large distribution was organised by our partners of the CBO ACC (Community Based/ Organisation Ambokili Community Concern)

Maize, beans and oil were distributed to the population.

Some 1200 people were able to benefit from this emergency aid.
