The NGO Council of Kenya urges stakeholders to continue intervening in the drought situations affecting some parts of the country .
The Council of NGOs lauds the various stakeholders including our local and International Non-Governmental Organizations already doing something to intervene on the drought situations to save lives in the region.
The NGO Council lauds the step by the Government to save nearly 4 million people facing starvation in arid and semi arid areas including women and children.
This is a good move as earlier pledged by the Government to ensure relief supplies channeled through affiliate NGOs Members reach deserving cases of the hungry and that no food supplies would be diverted by unscrupulous elements.
The NGO Council calls for more interventions to save the current situations in danger but look for more sustainable measures to ensure that no Kenyan would be left to die of hunger under his watch.
The Council urges all affiliate members involved in food and water relief supplies to work closely with the local county governments and chiefs to ensure all deserving cases access the food, especially vulnerable groups like children and women and more importantly work on sustainable measures.
The umbrella organisation of NGOs praises President Dr. William Ruto Government and other development stakeholders for showing the concern of a responsible "leaders" who cannot eat and drink while his children are starving.
We urge the Government and other key stakeholders to continue responding as required whenever a situation like that affects any part of the country.
The pledge of weekly supplies to famine stricken regions as announced by the head of state was a step in the right direction which the council would fully support by providing logistics on the ground.
As NGO Council of Kenya being an umbrella organization and its members we shall continue playing a key role to ensure Kenyans receive necessary humanitarian support in the all parts of the nation.
