Kenya: bishops appeal for aid as famine looms
CWN - March 22, 2011
The bishops of Kenya have appealed for assistance as 2.1 million Kenyans face the prospect of famine brought on by drought.
“We are all deeply concerned by this crisis and suffering of many Kenyans as a result of the current drought,” said Cardinal John Njue of Nairobi. “Our concern is that of millions of vulnerable people who are facing the risk of starvation and the loss of livelihood of many communities as a result of the crisis.”
25% of the nation’s 37.9 million people are Catholic, according to Vatican statistics.
