|NAIROBI Cheap Mens Air Jordan 1 Reverse Shattered Backboard Black 555088-113 For Sale , Aug. 22 (Xinhua) -- The U.S. on Tuesday announced 32.6 million U.S. dollars in new funding for humanitarian assistance to address severe drought in Kenya where more than 3 million people are food insecure.
U.S. Ambassador to Kenya Robert F. Godec said the funding is part of U.S. Agency for International Development's ongoing support to Kenya's drought response, coordinated by the National Drought Management Authority.
"The U.S. is helping to feed children and families who are suffering as a result of the drought. We are working to save lives and to support Kenyan efforts to build resilience in the most vulnerable communities," Godec said in a statement issued in Nairobi.
The East African nation is grappling with food insecurity occasioned by two seasons of failed drains in the country's breadbaskets.
The escalating drought which affected an estimated 3 million people forced the government to adopt short term measures like tax waivers on maize imports to stave off hunger related deaths.
However, robust state intervention has stabilized the price of maize flour that is currently retailing at around 0.9 dollars, down from over 2 dollars in May.
The drought is also causing an increase in malnutrition especially among children in northern Kenya.

PRO-RUSSIA troops yesterday shot down two Ukrainian helicopters, killing two crew, as forces tightened their siege of separatist-held Slaviansk, and Moscow accused Kiev of launching a “criminal” assault that had wrecked hopes of peace.
Though Ukrainian forces appeared to be carrying out one of their most concerted military operations yet Cheap Men's Air Jordan 1 Retro High Flyknit Black Red 919704-001 For Sale , their advance on the ground was limited. Nevertheless, Russian President Vladimir Putin’s spokesman accused Kiev of firing on civilians from the air in a “punitive operation” that destroyed an international peace plan.
Russia was “extremely worried” about the fate of Russians in the city, including an envoy sent to help free German and other foreign hostages, the Kremlin spokesman said.
The dramatic language seems to raise the stakes, as Moscow has tens of thousands of troops massed on the border and claims the right to invade if needed to protect Russian speakers.
In Slaviansk Cheap Men's Air Jordan 1 Retro High Flyknit Royal Black White 919704-006 For Sale , the most heavily fortified bastion of pro-Russians in eastern Ukraine, shooting broke out and a helicopter opened fire before dawn. Ten hours later, the city was largely quiet, with shops shut and armed separatists in control of the streets.
Advancing Ukrainian forces in armored vehicles took up positions closer in to the suburbs, but rebels still controlled most of the city of 130 Cheap Men's OFF white fragment design Air Jordan 1 Black Blue AA3834-103 For Sale ,000.
The pro-Russia militants also made more moves on Thursday, seizing a rail control center for the Donetsk region, a railway official said.
By cutting off power, they had all but paralyzed train traffic.
Kiev said the firing of missiles that brought down its helicopters was evidence that Russian forces were present in the town. Moscow denies that its troops are on the ground.
Nonetheless, Kremlin accounts of threats to civilians highlight the risk of a Russian move to seize territory ahead of a vote the pro-Russians aim to hold on May 11 seeking a mandate to break with Kiev Cheap Men's Off-White Air Jordan 1 The Ten White Black AA3834-101 For Sale , like that held in the Crimea region before Moscow annexed it in March.
About 100 people gathered in the square outside city hall in Slaviansk yesterday and said they were appealing to Putin to send troops to help them.
Businesswoman Tamara Voshchanaya said: “What can you think when the sound of cannon makes you jump out of bed, when helicopters are flying over and shooting at our guys?
“We are ready to stand firm. Give us weapons, and we too will go against the Right Sector,” she said, referring to a Ukrainian nationalist group Cheap Air Jordan 13 Retro For Sale , which Moscow said is menacing Russian speakers across Ukraine.
On the town’s southern outskirts, eight Ukrainian armored personnel carriers cut off the road but faced a cordon two deep of local residents shouting at them to go home.
The European Union said it was watching events in Ukraine with growing concern. But Kiev is not a member of NATO and Western leaders have said they will not fight to defend it.
The Ukrainian Defense Ministry said in a statement that two Mi-24 attack helicopters were shot down by shoulder-launched anti-aircraft missiles while on patrol overnight around Slaviansk. Two airmen were killed and others were wounded.
A third helicopter, an Mi-8 transport aircraft, was also hit injuring a serviceman, the ministry said.
The SBU security service said it was carrying medics.
Ukrainian officials said their troops overran rebel checkpoints and Slaviansk was now “tightly encircled.”
Putin’s spokesman heaped blame on the Ukrainian government Cheap Air Jordan 12 Retro For Sale , which took power two months ago after pro-Western protests forced the Kremlin-backed elected president to flee to Russia.
Noting that Putin had warned before that any “punitive operation” would be a “criminal act,” Dmitry Peskov sa.
