The ongoing drought conditions in Kenya has had a major impact in some areas where school going children are unable to afford there daily regular meals. The hard struck Tigania East Sub County in Meru has emerged to be greatly impacted as children can't afford lunch and breakfast before going to school.
This has forced some of them to resolve to wild fruits which they take before going back to schools. This is especially those who did not manage to pay 6kgs for maize flour 1kg for millet flour. When released for lunch, some of the boys were spotted not going home because they can't find anything to eat.
Instead of going home, some were spotted hanging on a tree feasting on fruits eaten by squirrels and monkeys. Several other school children are said to be entering the bushes whenever it's lunch time to pick fruits before going back to school. This is because of the hard situation in their families. The community volunteer has appealed to the government to help the children get enough food.
