Mimi je,,,this a kiswahili phrase meaning 'what about me? ' Ideally to ask myself, what about me? What have I done to change the situation to make it better.
There are many things that affect our country, Kenya but one that has really hit the country is drought greatly affecting areas like Northern Kenya. Many a times we blame the government, the rich and everyone else for challenges affecting our society but we fail to ask ourselves... What about me? What have I done to change the situation?
Kenya, suffers food crisis in East Africa alongside Ethiopia, Somali and South Sudan. This has recently been caused by two failed rainy seasons in a row, hugely reducing crop harvests. This has raised the no. Of Kenyans needing aid food to 3 million which could rise to 4million in coming months. Malnutrition among children is on the rise, children getting sick, livelihoods of families worsens following loss of livestock. For pastoralist communities in Northern Kenya, rain and cattle is as vital as air. Counties such as Turkana has been neglected that some do not see themselves as citizens in their own country. That's why I name this ,,MiMi Je! ?
Yes, I may not be as rich, I may not be a high rank in the politics...., but I may be of iinfluence.I may be vocal or I may have just 1$ that could make that change.If the whole world contributed a dollar, a day or in two days....how far would that go in changing lives ? I am here,sincerely requesting each of your donation to make that difference.
As a mother, I would do anything to feed my child,that is why I empathize with those facing this drought ,because I cannot bear it anymore.I may not reach everyone,but I would have made a difference.
My wish is to buy sacks of maize and beans, donate clothes and hope to the future of my fellow Kenyans.
Please join me and stand in support of saving a life today.
Thank you too for taking time to read this
