Caritas: Millions at risk in Kenya

August 15, 2011

Caritas Internationalis, the confederation of Catholic relief and development agencies, has launched a $5.6-million appeal on behalf of drought-stricken Kenya.

“Over 3.6 million people are in need of emergency assistance but this could rise to 5 million as the situation worsens,” according to a Caritas statement. “Caritas will provide food and water and will also help farmers improve their crops and boost their livestock.”
