In recent weeks the famine in the Horn of Africa has been the focus of our attention. Our enquiries revealed that, as other agencies were discovering, it was impossible to put in LifeStraw via Somalia. We had previously supplied LifeStraw to Kenya, and further enquiries revealed a distribution route to the stricken area. We now have managed to have delivered to northern and eastern Kenya, the famine area, sufficient LifeStraw to provide in excess of
50, 000,000 litres of safe water. (The LifeStraw does not in itself produce water, but does allow ANY water source (not salt) to be used)
As we have donated both LifeStraw models, the elderly and very young will also be provided with this essential of life.
