The 2017 food crisis in East Africa is not over. After all, with the failure of crops, food will be in short supply until another harvest. And without good rains, even the next harvest may not happen. How is it currently impacting Kenya, and Future Stars in particular? And what can you do to help?
The food crisis, caused by Kenya’s appalling drought, continues. However, there is hope that the situation will improve soon, and Chaffinch continues to do what it can to support the children of Future Stars.
Kenya is suffering the consequences of the worst drought since 1945. Today, a vital foodstuff can no longer be found in Kibera. So what’s going on? And how can you help?
We’ve provided a lot of food in 3 years. For example, the equivalent weight of 8 giant pandas in chapati flour!
In the months of July, August, and September 2016, Chaffinch has supplied lots of food (and other consumables) necessary for the ongoing welfare of the children at Future Stars.
With an increase in the number of hungry children being fed by the feeding programme at Future Stars, it has become necessary to purchase more bowls and plates for them to use.
Food has finally arrived at Future Stars to fill the stomachs that have been rumbling over the past few weeks.
It’s exam time, but the children can’t concentrate. Take a look at this short video explaining why the children of Future Stars can’t reach their potential.
Food purchases have again been made to keep the children of Future Stars well fed for a little longer.
