Vulnerable households receive food aid to cushion them against hunger

Hundreds of vulnerable households consisting of elderly and sick occupants as well as Children homes in Isiolo County have received food aid to cushion them from pangs of hunger amid the ongoing prolonged drought and tough economic times.

The food aid is courtesy of the County Woman Member of National Assembly Mumina Bonaya and Deputy Governor James Lowasa.

Speaking at Victors’ Children’s home in Burat ward when they delivered the relief food aid, the two leaders said that the food they were able to solicit courtesy of their families and friends was only enough to share among the most vulnerable members of the community with attention to special groups such as the elderly, sick as well as orphaned and destitute children in various children’s homes.

They however pledged to continue soliciting for more food including from both the national and county governments as well as other organisations so that all the needy members of the community are helped out.

Isiolo Deputy Governor James Lowasa noted that a supplementary budget will soon be presented to the County Assembly so that the MCAs approve it to enable the County Government Administration to have adequate funds to respond better to the current hunger situation that has been occasioned by the prolonged drought, assuring other needy household members that they will be considered during future relief food distribution exercises, once the supplementary budget is passed/approved.

Victors’ Children’s Home founder Martin Miriti lauded the leaders for their timely intervention, noting that with over 150 children including those who have now reported back to the home after closure of schools, the institution would now have an easier time to feed them over the long holiday, courtesy of the food aid.

The area manager for Game Village in Burat ward Andrea Nanok noted that the past two years have been tough for the local community members who are predominantly pastoralist, with most of their livestock succumbing to drought. He appealed for more food aid in order to ensure that all the needy families that are yet to be reached out also get help to overcome the challenge of hunger. At least 120 vulnerable households from Game village benefitted from the aid.

Mumina noted that a similar intervention was ongoing in Merti, Garbatula and Oldonyiro areas of Isiolo, pledging to continue working together with other county leaders to seek more help for other needy households that did not benefit from this first intervention.
