Care steps up African aid effort

Charity Care International has stepped up its efforts to provide clean water in East Africa due to severe droughts with a campaign to raise $48M (£29.6M).

Care is working alongside the United Nations and other aid agencies to provide water and sanitation to the Dadaab refugee camp in Kenya.

The charity is pumping and distributing 7.5M.l of water per day to the camp, the population of which stood at 398,189 on 31 July and is rising by 1,300 per day.

According to Care, the drought in the region is the most severe in 60 years and has resulted in a major increase in food prices.
