U.K. To End Aid Package To Kenya’s Drought-Hit Communities In 2024

The Guardian: Cuts to U.K. aid: package to drought-hit Kenya to end in 2024
“British funding of a 10-year-old aid package to drought-hit communities in Kenya is to end in 2024 as part of a new economic partnership with the country, the international development secretary has told the Guardian. The £143m program, which has helped 600,000 vulnerable people in emergencies via direct cash transfers — a system criticized by some Conservatives as the equivalent of exporting the dole — is the first U.K. aid project of its kind that will be wholly taken over by a government in Africa…” (McVeigh, 1/22).
