Thank you for giving hope
Nine-year-old Joshua and his parents, Jeniffer and Josphat, know only too well the anguish and suffering that come with prolonged droughts.
The family live in a predominantly dry area of eastern Kenya and have battled with unending droughts over the past three years, which has caused the death of livestock and crop failures. This has driven families into poverty as agriculture is the main source of livelihood and income for the majority of the community.
“There are days, during periods of drought, when all we had was watery porridge that we relied on for breakfast, lunch and supper. Other days, we had nothing and we would all sleep hungry,” says Jeniffer.
No child should have to go to bed hungry. We urgently need child sponsors to empower children and their community to break free from poverty. We need you.
