Malnutrition rates in Turkana have dropped to 13.7 per cent from 37.4 per cent as a result of direct intervention by the Kenyans for Kenya Initiative, the Initiative’s steering committee has announced.
The committee also reported that 2,057 metric tonnes of Unimix has so far been distributed to 285,729 school going children in 2,381 schools in the affected areas.
An additional 1900 metric tonnes, which was recently imported from S. Africa, is currently being distributed to schools in ASALs under the school feeding programme.
By July last year, just weeks before the Kenyans for Kenya Initiative was launched, more than 3.75 million people in arid and semi-arid districts were in dire need of food assistance.
Malnutrition rates were at emergency level, and more than 385,000 children below 5 years in 13 districts were suffering from acute malnutrition. The Government consequently declared the drought a National Disaster.
The committee said that in the period since the launch of the Kenyans for Kenya Initiative, some 326 metric tonnes of certified drought resistant seeds have been distributed to over 200,000 farmers while 3100 families in the greater Yatta region have benefitted from 1,000 cassava cuttings each, through a collaborative venture between the Kenya Red Cross and Kenya Agricultural Research Institute (KARI) – Katumani.
