- President Uhuru Kenyatta appealed to international communities to support the country as it faces drought situation
Kenya on Monday, March 20 received food supplies worth $40,000 (Sh 4.37 million) from Botswana aimed at alleviating the drought crisis in two counties.
The Southern Africa nation said it responded to an appeal made by President Uhuru Kenyatta last month in a crisis that has been described as the world’s worst humanitarian crisis since the end of World War 2.
The donation included food supplies and fortified sorghum meal for infants and is expected to benefit 1000 needy households in Laikipia and Baringo counties over the next month.
“The Government and people of the Republic of Botswana, who have benefited from the generosity and friendship of Kenya over the years are pleased to stand with the friendly Government and people of the Republic of Kenya at this time of need,” a statement reads.
