Millions of Kenyans face food insecurity and poor nutrition each year with children being most vulnerable to hunger and serious health problems caused by hunger. Many families living in poverty in Njoro miss at least one meal a day, many have days where there is no food at home at all and so the children have no option but to go to the streets to beg or steal what they can. On the streets, children are at risk of violence, abuse, drugs, and other street life habits.
And he answered them, “Whoever has two tunics is to share with him who has none, and whoever has food is to do likewise.”
- Luke 3 v11
