Kenya

Kenya has one of the largest economies in East and Central Africa, and a strong agricultural sector. However, the unequal distribution of wealth has left half of the country’s population living below the poverty line. Struggling Kenyans face daunting health challenges such as malnutrition, malaria, and waterborne diseases—all preventable illnesses that the nation’s public health system is ill-equipped to handle. To assist these vulnerable populations, Action Against Hunger has been implementing programs in nutrition, food security, and water, sanitation, and hygiene in Kenya since 2002.
