With more attention and more assistance, there is hope that Turkana can flourish again. World Relief is working alongside local Kenyan churches and the World Food Program to help increase food access for more of the 200,000 vulnerable in Turkana. Yet food alone is not enough. To avoid dependency, new solutions in agriculture and food-security are required and long term economic interventions will be needed to sustain a recovery for the people of Turkana.

There is hope in Turkana that a famine can be averted and an ancient culture can be saved. We can respond to this emergency before it becomes a catastrophe.

Take action by signing ONE’s petition urging world leaders to end hunger and its causes now http://act.one.org/sign/horn_of_africa_us/ and visit World Relief’s website http://www.worldrelief.org to provide assistance for the vulnerable of Turkana.
