The Anglican Diocese of Chichester in southern England is assisting with urgent relief efforts in the drought hit Kenyan Diocese of Nakura. An emergency grant of 5000 pounds is being sent directly to the Diocese, which, in partnership with the Anglican Church of Kenya’s Development Services, will buy and distribute foodstuff and other essential supplies in the most affected areas.
Chichester’s World Mission Officer, the Rev’d Canon Ian Hutchinson Cervantes, has mobilised funds to try to avert a tragedy following an email from Bishop Joseph Muchai requesting assistance.
