You Can Help Save a Life
Nearly 200,000 people are in urgent need of food in Turkana County, a region in northern Kenya where Bright Hope
works. The people are suffering from a devastating drought. One local resident made this chilling, tragic statement to us:
“I just want to tell you the truth—you have also witnessed with your own eyes—you have seen the graves of the people who died due to hunger.”
Across half of the nation’s counties, it’s estimated that 1.1 million Kenyans do not have enough food.
At Bright Hope, we believe God asks us to respond with all our might when our partner churches in remote villages have a crisis on their hands and lives are at stake.
Distributing urgently needed food staples.
We are distributing staple foods of flour, beans, oil and
salt through our partner churches.
Your donation today will help fund life-saving efforts such as food relief in the wake of natural disasters like this drought.
Want to share about this crisis with others who may have never heard of Turkana or the people suffering from the terrible drought? We’ve created a free factsheet you can print or forward to your friends, family members or church leaders who may want to help.
A traditional people on the brink of disaster.
About 90% of the Turkana people are pastoralists—some of whom are nomadic—meaning the animals they raise are their primary source of food and income.
But the drought is killing the animals, and recently we’ve seen rows of withered animal corpses lined up on the dry, dusty ground. It’s catastrophic because if the Turkanas can’t feed their animals and the animals die, then the people lose both their livelihood and food source.
The government has distributed some food, but it’s not enough. We need to help. One man told us how people are so weak that even when they were receiving food they could barely stand or walk. “We are not sure if they will live to see the next three, four days,” he said, “others will die.”
We don’t want to see even one more person suffering from starvation or malnourishment, whether in Turkana, the Nairobi slums, Uganda or Bolivia. We need your help.
