It cannot get much drier…. even tough survivors like zebras are dying, sadly I saw a few dead ones on my way to Loisiijo yesterday. Cows have been dying by the hundreds and times are really tough for everyone.

On the 15th October I joined the Shompole leaders to make some food distribution, the food was sponsored by generous American well wishers.

60 x 90kg bags of maize and beans, plus numerous containers of cooking oil had been brought to Oloika village.

Smiles were on everyone’s face, but what is really needed is rain to ease the suffering.
