Donations to Combat Starvation among Families in Western Kenya. Hunger. Drought. Disease. Sadly, these are constants in the lives of people in the western region of Kenya where WiRED International provides health training programs.
Hunger is a constant in the lives of people in the western region of Kenya where WiRED provides health training programs. This year, food shortage is much worse than ever, as the most severe drought in 30 years has dried up crops
