On 18th January 2017, the Kenya and County Governments declared that the current drought situation in Turkana is at an alarming stage. As the situation worsens, an emergency drought situation was declared by the National Drought Management Authority (NDMA). The situation has deteriorated further as rains continue to fail. The affected areas are Turkana and other arid and semi-arid parts of Kenya. The MCSPA is making an appeal to their friends and benefactors to lend a helping hand to the people affected by the drought.
