The East African country is fighting hunger.

According to the Human Development Report 2021/2022, Kenya is home to around 55 million people from more than 40 ethnic groups. Conditions in the country are characterised by great regional differences. Serious human rights violations, high infant and maternal mortality rates, ethnic conflicts and political corruption are a burden on the development of this East African country, most of which is inhabited by Christians. In addition, the people are suffering from the consequences of climate change. Due to ever shorter intervals between droughts, there is a shortage of drinking water. In the north and west of the country in particular, livestock is dying of thirst as a source of food and income, and people are starving.
