Islamic Relief – Kenya Programme, Annual Report of the Year 2012
This report summarizes the activities and achievements of the Islamic Relief Worldwide Kenya Programme, for the year 2012.
IR started operations in Kenya in 1993 on one-to-one orphans sponsorship programme through a local CBO in Mandera District, Northern Kenya. It opened its fully fledged office in March in 2006 at the height of drought in the Horn of Africa. Since, then IR has been providing humanitarian and development assistance to vulnerable communities. Over these years it has implemented various development and relief activities in the region. This has remarkably changed the lives of the vulnerable and disadvantaged communities.
In January 2010, IRK extended its operation to Wajir county, neighbouring Mandera. Again, in October 2011, the programme was extended to Garrissa County, with a focus to primarily support Refugees at the Dadaab Camp (the largest refugee camp globally) and host communities at the neighbourhood. Northern Region and indeed North Eastern Kenya is the least developed region in Kenya.
