Water Trucking in East Africa: UHR Responds to the Severe Drought in Kenya and Ethiopia

More than 10 million people and their livestock across East Africa are facing a catastrophic humanitarian crisis as extreme weather events are causing severe recurring droughts. Climate extremes in East African countries like Kenya, Ethiopia and Somalia have caused widespread food shortages. East Africa is on the brink of famine.
In Kenya alone, an estimated 2.1 million Kenyans face starvation due to the current drought in half the country, which is affecting harvests (reported by the Guardian). National disaster has been declared as crops fail after poor grains and locusts, while ethnic conflicts make the crisis worse. United Hands Relief is urgently appealing for your help to respond.
