bidorbuy Supports The Kenyans for Kenya Campaign

KENYANS for KENYA brings together key players in corporate Kenya and media in massive effort to raise Sh500 million, in four weeks, towards famine relief for over 3.5 million Kenyans. The crisis is said to be the worst in 60 years.

Money raised through the KENYANS for KENYA campaign is expected to be used to finance a raft of short and medium term interventions meant to alleviate the suffering of the most vulnerable groups and eventually underpin food security in the long term. Short-term interventions include buying Unimix, a nutritious pre-cooked meal for school feeding programs and at health centres and other locations which will target the vulnerable like the aged and mothers. The money will also be used to buy and transport water from existing water sources.


A ton of Unimix costs KS 105,000 and can feed 100 children for 4 to 5 months, whereas trucking of 15,000 litres of water within a distance of 100 kilometres will cost Sh25, 000. Medium-term interventions will entail ensuring access by over 250,000 persons, to safe and clean drinking water through rehabilitation or sinking of boreholes and construction of green-houses in schools and areas where there is access to water via drip irrigation.

Some 3.5 million Kenyans, mainly in northern Kenya are staring at imminent starvation and death. The situation has been exacerbated by runaway inflation, a poor maize crop for the current season and a ballooning refugee crisis in ever unstable Somalia, Kenya’s northern neighbour.
