Ganze in Kilifi county, with a focus on Bamba area. Kilifi is the county seat of Kenya and home to around 1,5 million people (2019) living in 12,245.9 km².


Rains has failed, drought causes extreme hardship. Cases of malnutrition have escalated in the drought-stricken Bamba division in Kilifi County owing to the prolonged drought that has hit the region depriving residents of food and water. With 90 per cent of households in Bamba living below poverty line, erratic food security has contributed to the deteriorating trend of malnutrition that has mostly affected children under five years, elderly persons, pregnant and lactating mothers.
