Qatar's ambassador to Kenya, Jabor bin Ali al-Dosari, participated in the distribution of food to the drought-affected people.
After visiting the only hospital in the region, which lacks basic services, ambassador al-Dosari underlined the importance carrying health projects for the benefit of the people of the region, stressing the need to support the people with everything necessary to withstand the harsh weather conditions.
For his part MP Lokiru Ali Mohamed thanked donors in Qatar for completing the project as part of their efforts to help the Kenyan people.
According to UN reports, East Africa, particularly Kenya and Somalia, is experiencing a severe drought that threatens the lives of millions of people due to delayed seasonal rains, the sharp decline in local food production and the difficulty of delivering humanitarian aid.
The drought conditions, which are expected to continue until the end of this year, have led to the transformation of about 3.4mn people into food insecurity.
Qatar Charity carries out various projects in various areas in Kenya, including drilling wells and relief projects, as well as construction projects such as schools, mosques and health centers, in addition to its efforts in the field of social welfare, where more than 4,000 orphans are fostered.
