Food parcels include rice, beans, maize, oil and salt.

“I have nothing to feed my family,” Gedie, a single mother of 8 children in Kenya, says. Sitting inside her grass hut, she describes the urgency of her situation. Failed rains have caused gardens to wither and livestock to die.

“At times we have to skip meals as there is nothing to cook. My family had to sell two goats at a throwaway price in order to buy food.” ADRA’s food rations have been live-saving. “It is more than a joy that my family has received 30kgs of rice, 10 kgs of beans, 5 litres of cooking oil and a packet of salt (0.5kg) this month and there is hope for the next two months. This food will supplement the little we have and my family may not skip meals for the rest of the month.”
