In Kenya, people are dying as they lay waiting for help. Children are starving, choking on powdered foodstuffs that they cannot swallow without water.

The international community has been slow to respond for various reasons but meanwhile lives are being lost.

They need water.

Following the NY Times article Lush Land Dries Up, Withering Kenya’s Hopes Real Medicine connected with its author, Jeffrey Gettleman, in Kenya to intervene.

"We decided to support the efforts to get water and immediate relief to the people in the afflicted areas as quickly as possible," says Dr. Martina Fuchs, Founder and CEO of Real Medicine.

In addition to coordinating with the NY Times office in Nairobi, RMF is coordinating with WorldVision to deliver food to children under the age of five. We are also linking with local water/ irrigation projects in the region for longer term water and food security.

Already on his way to Southern Sudan, Michael Lear, Director of International Relations for Real Medicine, will be in Kenya this weekend to begin setting up an infrastructure that will assist those afflicted worst.

Please join us in Kenya. We can help but not without you.
