The locust plague that has torn through Eastern Africa has decimated entire farms and put food security at risk for countless families. One mother recalled out she had "Nothing left" with which to sustain her family.
She is Mwende Kimanzi of Kyuso, Kenya. Kyuso is an area 2 hours and 27 minutes away from the county where our sister project FirmRock Children's Helper operates.
