Drought Response in the Health Sector in Kenya
Welthungerhilfe started an emergency programme for hygenie and healthcare in September 2011. The BMZ/GIZ-funded project "Drought Response in the Health Sector in Kenya", implemented by Welthungerhilfe, addressing the negative impact of the protracted drought in various areas in Northern and North Eastern Kenya. The main aim of the intervention in the health sector is to address the immediate need for essential hygiene kits in Dadaab and the supply of water in Tana River, Marsabit and Ukambani (areas of Makueni, Kitui, and Mwingi). The principal objective of this project is to strengthen and upscale on-going emergency interventions to save lives and enhance the health of families.
