Famine Relief in Laikipia North
Om Sri Sai Ram.
Kenya has seen one of the longest droughts in the last 40 years. It has lasted over 3 years, as the last long rains were in 2018. To help alleviate the suffering, Sri Sathya Sai Centre – Kenya organized a famine relief program in the Laikipia North region of Kenya.
With Swami’s grace and blessings, we distributed 1000 hampers. One hamper feeds a family of 4 for 1 month. Each hamper weighed 12 kg with the following food items: 6 kg Unga, 2 kg beans, 2 kg rice, 1 kg greengrams, 500 g salt, and 500 g cooking fat.
The seva was carried out over 4 days covering a total of 600 km.

08 July: Volunteers from the Sai Centre drove to Nanyuki to help with distribution.
09 July: Hamper distribution in Ewaso, and Kimaju areas of Laikipia North.
