The Proposal for Bank emergency assistance to Kenya is a direct response to the Kenya Food Security Network observation that the ongoing drought has led to a critical decline in food security among the pastoral communities and poor urban households. The grant funds is used to purchase food items as well as associated costs of transportation and distribution of food rations to the beneficiaries and for administrative charges. The total grant amount is limited to the approved country ceiling of US$1,000,000 (one million United States Dollars).
The objective the emergency humanitarian relief assistance is to contribute to the Government of Kenya and UN’s efforts in providing urgent food aid distributions and deliveries of water purification supplies to drought affected families in arid and semi arid areas.
Relief food assistance will be channeled through targeted food distribution to 25,000 households affected by the drought mainly the vulnerable groups (widows, orphans, female and elderly-headed households) without alternative means of survival.
