As we are all aware, several counties of our country are currently facing drought resulting to over 2 million Kenyans experiencing starvation. This has caused loss of life, increased morbidities related to malnutrition and lack of access to adequate, clean and safe water for people, livestock and wildlife.
In keeping with our vision with regard to service to humanity, I kindly appeal to all of us to give donations so that we can respond to the drought situation as Kenyatta University Community in a coordinated manner. Through your generous support, we target to provide food for one month to at least 1000 families in Garissa County.
