ASAL Humanitarian Network Cash Transfer
By the end of August 2021, 3.5 million Kenyans (almost 7% of the population) will be severely food insecure. This was the result of a triple threat of locusts, floods and the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. These climatic and environmental impacts have affected livelihoods and supply chain throughout the country, as well as increasing prices of basic commodities.
In an urgent response to address the growing humanitarian needs, in November 2021 with financial support from Oxfam, we disbursed Kes 4,261,275 to 535 House Holds in Rawana, Funan Qumbi, Elleborr, Elledhimtu, Turbi, and Burgabo. Each House Hold received kes 7,965 via MPESA for two cycles. This eased horrendous suffering inflicted by the ravaging drought on these pastoral communities at least for two months of 2021.
