Without food, everything is a struggle. Just ask Kipish.
Sadly, many children in Emali, Kenya, are facing another difficult year. Children like Kipish.
Mary, his mother, does everything she can, but there simply isn’t enough food. Kipish is lucky if he eats just once a day – and that’s on the ‘good days’, when they have managed to sell some firewood. On other days, there is nothing.
Kipish is malnourished, and often sick. His mother worries for him constantly.

"My biggest worry is for my children, that they do not get enough food. If Kipish continues to grow this way, he will never be a strong man because of lack of food." - Mary (Kipish' Mother)
