Northern Rangelands appeal
Transform thousands more lives with sand dams

Right now, millions of men, women and children living in Kenya are in the grip of a long and devastating drought, resulting in livestock deaths, and a loss of food, income and dignity. A recent report even revealed that many families in Turkana County, Northern Kenya, were forced to go the entire day without eating. Communities in the Northern Rangelands, Kenya, need your support to build four sand dams and provide clean water for their families. Please consider making a donation today to enable these communities to extend the network of sand dams in the Northern Rangelands, providing their families, neighbours and livestock with clean water for life.
