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, and the war in Ukraine has halted vital shipments of grain (90% of Kenya’s wheat came from Ukraine). The threat of massive starvation is real.

Each year, WiRED helps raise funds to support the purchase of groceries for people in the western part of Kenya. We call it the Sister Bernadette Sunshine-Mitzvah Fund, where all money collected goes directly to purchase food — with zero spent on administration or on anything else. 

These links provide more detail about this year’s special fundraising effort and the fund itself and present compelling stories on how WiRED support has made a difference to Kenyan families in the past. Thank you for taking a few minutes to learn about the pressing need among the poor in Kenya and about how to help us address it.

Thank you!
