Salvation Army Provides Water to Drought-Hit Communities in Kenya

Friday, August 12, 2011

The Salvation Army is responding to the drought crisis in East Africa by providing water to the people of the Turkana region of northern Kenya. Due to the current scarcity, people in this region are forced to travel more than two miles on average to access water. As a result, schools are closing because they lack the funds to pay food and water bills.

The Salvation Army is funding almost $50,000 to cover the fuel, labor, and maintenance costs for water tanks and tractors for six months. Water will be collected from boreholes, transported to the large water tanks, and taken to communities and schools in Turkana. Some of the funds will improve storage facilities of schools and villages.

This plan will provide around 5,000 villagers and 2,000 schoolchildren with clean, safe water. The efforts will also decrease the distance travelled to fetch water and reduce the risk of women being abused as they seek water in isolated locations.

Donations to the Africa Disaster Fund at International Headquarters can be made online at www.salvationarmy.org.
