Bishop of St Albans asks about alleviating effects of famine in Kenya

The Bishop of St Albans received the following written answer on 28th March 2023:

The Lord Bishop of St Albans asked His Majesty’s Government what support they are providing to Kenya to alleviate the effects of famine caused by drought in that country.

Lord Goldsmith of Richmond Park (Con): In response to the ongoing drought in Kenya, 30,500 children have received life-saving nutritional assistance due to the UK’s support. UK supported programmes have also reached over half a million people in Kenya in drought-prone areas. Programmes such as the Hunger Safety Net Programme (HSNP) are bolstering the use of cash-based safety nets and have had a demonstrable impact in mitigating some of the worst effects of the drought.
