Africa - Kenya - Fr Racho distributing food

Fr Racho gives out food at a CAFOD-funded food distribution in Marsabit County, Kenya.

CAFOD's work in Kenya includes supporting communities facing recurring drought, a changing climate, and people living with HIV.

Why we work in Kenya

Kenya is a largely agricultural country, but fertile land is scarce. Competition for resources often leads to conflict and environmental damage as land is overused.

Kenya has a lot of potential for growth through trade and tourism, but bad governance and corruption are worsening inequality and conflict.

Our work in Kenya

Your support is changing lives by:

  • Making sure that communities have access to clean water. Our local experts regularly work with communities on water projects, providing tools, trees and training.

  • Responding to emergencies by handing out food parcels and paying local people to do essential work. We have experience of responding quickly with your support during the East Africa drought and we can do it again.

  • Continuing to work with church leaders - who've been our long-term partners in tackling corruption - to raise awareness of coronavirus prevention and hygiene messages.

  • Giving practical support to people living with HIV.

World Food Crisis

Together, we can reach out with love to help our sisters and brothers around the world who are facing extreme hunger through no fault of their own.
