a response to the Hunger Emergency in Eastern Kenya

Dr. Angelo Tomedi recently returned from a visit to clinic sponsored by Albuquerque-based Global Health Partnerships in the Yatta and Kitui Districts of eastern Kenya. During that trip, he discovered that an extended drought had worsened already difficult conditions for local villages. A shortage of food has affected both adults and children, especially endangering ongoing efforts to improve child nutrition in the area. Dr. Tomedi will present a slideshow and talk more about this emergency situation. Read Dr. Tomedi's blog post
