Kenya has been facing one of the most prolonged droughts in the last 40 years, lasting over three years. Over three million animals have perished, while millions of people are starving, without food and livelihoods. To help alleviate the suffering, SSSIO volunteers from Sri Sathya Sai Centers in Kenya undertook a massive food distribution effort during November 24-25, 2022, in honor of Sathya Sai Baba’s Birthday.Video
Traveling over 480 km, they distributed 500 hampers of food in the Sosoma and Nuu regions of Mwingi. Each hamper, weighing 24 kg, contained Unga, beans, rice, and salt, enough to feed a family of seven for a month. The Red Cross, Kenya, helped the SSSIO with the transportation and delivery of food.
