Nairobi parishes donate food to drought-stricken dioceses
Kenyan Cardinal John Njue on Friday expressed satisfaction with donations of food made by parishioners in the Archdiocese of Nairobi. The donations are destined for Kenya’s drought-stricken dioceses of Isiolo and Marsabit.
“The decision to mobilise food from our parishes came about from the realisation that nearly half of the counties in Kenya are adversely affected by drought with millions of people facing starvation and in desperate need of food and water,” the Archbishop of Nairobi said.
The donations weighing 80 tonnes and valued at KShs 8 Million (about US$78,000) were received from the 111 parishes within the Archdiocese of Nairobi.
