Kenya Drought: Desperate to keep animals alive

Dear Friend of the Animals,

Right now, there is a devastating drought across parts of the Greater Horn of Africa. Due to a large-scale failure of rains, parts of Somalia, Ethiopia, and Kenya have received less than a quarter of their normal seasonal rainfall.

Water levels are declining fast and crops and pasture have been ravaged. Vegetation conditions are the worst on record in many areas. As you can imagine, the impact has been devastating on the animals.

Desperate scramble to keep animals alive

Farming communities have been trekking further and further to find water and pasture for their livestock. But sadly, deaths of livestock, an economic mainstay for many communities in the region, are now widespread.

Diseases, starvation and dehydration

The body condition of livestock, especially cattle, is deteriorating and resulting in a poor welfare state. These helpless animals are dying because of diseases, starvation and dehydration and we’re desperate to supply aid but we need your help today.

Save an animal with pocket change

For only $1 you could provide one animal with feed, minerals and vet care so they can stay strong and healthy during the drought.

But we aren’t saving just one animal. We’re aiming to save over 80,000 animals in Kajaido County – one of the worst affected county in Kenya. And this is where I need your quick response.

$25, $50 or $100 would have a massive impact on helping these animals suffering from disaster and it could not come soon enough.

You can help us reach our goal of helping 80,000 animals. Please send your gift today.
