Meet Mama Akiru

Mama Akiru lives in northern Kenya with her children and grandchildren.

Though she tries to take care of her family, the lack of rain has been punishing her people.  She feels terrible.  She can’t do much for her family, or for anyone else.  They only eat one meal per day—and that “meal” is tea.

Nothing solid had gone into their bodies for the past nine days.  In fact, her pain had been so great, she takes a piece of cloth and ties it around her stomach to numb the pain.  It’s her only option for dying in peace.

Hearing that there might be food distributed, she and a few grandchildren walked 11 kilometers (6.8 miles) to see if the rumors were true.

The four-hour walk took everything out of her.  She arrived and found that indeed there was food, but her strength was gone.  She didn’t have enough energy to get up to fill her bag.  She was done.

Seeing this elderly matriarch, the director of Spear Africa walked over to her and asked if he could fill her bag.  She weakly smiled and said, “Yes, but fill their bags first.”

Mama Akiru received nourishment for a month because people from America have teamed up with Spear Africa to purchase and distribute food to those in dire need. 

But there’s so much more to be done.

1 million people are just like Mama Akiru.  They live in Northern Kenya and are starving to death this year due to a prolonged drought.  But 98% of them haven’t received any food like her.  You don’t see them on our evening news, and because their government hasn’t declared it an emergency, not even the U.N. is reaching them.

Join Project 9.7, an initiative to adopt 140,000 families by giving $9 a month for 7 months (through Nov 2019) when rain will hopefully have come to produce a harvest, so these families are once again able to provide for themselves.

$9 Feeds a Family of 7 for 1 Month.

There are an estimated 3 million people who are affected by this tragedy.   Approximately 2 million live near major towns and are able to get relief because these are the only places local agencies go  (they do not go into the interior).  The ones deep into the interior (where our team is reaching) do not get fed.  Our goal is to feed these 1 million people.

We are asking you to give $9 for 7 months to feed one family.  If you’re reading this in May of 2019, start now.  If in August 2019, start then.

We are also asking you to use your voice to be the voice of these suffering.
