The Primate’s World Relief and Development Fund is supporting Church World Service Kenya with a four-month humanitarian food assistance project in Wayu, Mikinduni and Kinakomba Wards, Tana River sub county, Tana River County, Kenya.

The area is being ravaged by drought that is deteriorating food security for many, especially households dependent on farming livelihoods. Below-average harvests have also resulted in reduced household income, making it difficult for families to purchase food.

Malnutrition is also increasing and concerning due to decreased milk supply from livestock which many children and pregnant and lactating women depend on for nutrition. In response, CWS Kenya will provide emergency food assistance to vulnerable households for four months. Each month, households will receive rations of maize flour, beans, cooking oil and salt.

3,000 households (15,000 people) will receive this assistance.
