The Volunteer Delivery Crew: Shawn, Victor, Peter and Andrew
We bought a portion of our food in Timau, in order to support economies that are closer to the drought affected communities.
There is plenty of food in certain regions, but those in the drought affected regions they have nothing to exchange for the food as all their livestock is dead or in faraway grazing land.
Loaded up and ready to go. Thank you Andrew Lettsome - Nanyuki for the vehicle and trailer.
Along the way we stopped six times to give water to young children like this who were suffering in the 37C (98F) degree heat as they watched the few livestock they had left.
Another water stop. This little man is ready with his kisu (knife).
Yep, another stop but a happy boy left behind.
She was walking alone on this long, hot highway most likely looking for food.
We saw three riverbeds just like this along the way.
After seven hours total driving, we finally arrived in Laisamis.
The kids were excited when they found out food arrived.
This acacia tree is the gathering place for the community and where the food distribution would happen.
No caption needed. However, notice the hair that is yellowing as lack of nutrition sets in.
We were moved by this little girl, with a mature lady's gaze, caring for her little brother.
There were quite a few elderly in the community, most of which could not earn money for food or travel very far to find any, yet their beauty and dignity remains intact.

The oldest of the Rendille elders.
Rendille elder, who among others gave us a very warm welcome.

Incredibly dry landscape makes it impossible to keep the livestock close by.
During our 3 hours in the community we continued to see more and more people walking to come receive food.
Most of the first group we assisted.
We also bought food from Laisamis so we could support the local shops and not hurt them by bringing in outside food. These bags were bought the same morning. Can't forget this beauty in her green dress.
Ready for the food to be unloaded.
Presenting the food to the elders for distribution.
Pastor Peter Katonga, our connection on the ground, shared with the community that God loved them and had not forgotten them.
Each family was given enough food for their family for the next couple of weeks.
The elderly were served first to make sure they were taken care of.
When you meet these little ones face to face there is no way to turn your back. We have to continue helping as they matter to God and should matter to us.
