The refugees are unable to work, grow crops or raise livestock, and have limited options to provide food for their families aside from the assistance that WFP distributes each month. In mid-November, insufficient funding forced WFP to reduce the size of their food rations by half. The Royal Kingdom of Saudi Arabia was one of the Government partners to respond to WFP’s urgent appeal, providing US$10 million. Together with contributions from other donors, this enabled WFP Kenya to resume full rations on 1 January 2015 for all refugees.

One goal of the programme is helping the government achieve its commitment for ‘Education for All’. The Government of Kenya has embraced school feeding, and matches WFP’s support through its own expanding Home-Grown School Meals Programme. Both WFP and Government supported programmes are currently providing meals to about 1.5m children in arid and semi-arid areas and the slums of Nairobi where food insecurity is highest.
