Children in Africa are facing extreme hunger and a devastating food crisis. Due to drought, it’s now estimated that 3.5 million people will be food insecure by August. Families who depend on livestock for their livelihoods continue to migrate in search of food and water. Save the Children in Kenya is conducting nutritional screenings and treatment in 149 sites. We treat children for malnutrition and are providing infant and young child feeding programs. Learn More.

The situation is growing worse by the day – if we don’t act now, many children risk losing their lives. You can help children in Kenya.

About Kenya

One of Africa’s most developed countries, Kenya is also one of the most unequal. And the places where we work present huge challenges - from severe drought conditions in the north east province to the enormity of the Dadaab refugee camp.
