Imagine being so hungry and because you have nothing to cook you slaughter and then eat cats. This is what some IDP’s (Internally Displaced Persons) in Gwakung’u IDP camp in Ndaragwa constituency did (Read the Full story here). I was astonished when i heard about the story, i mean they were eating CATS. Shouldn’t the government be providing them with relief food? A person must be in a very dire state to do something like that and they were.

I was wondering how i could help and i found out on twitter that Mercy Murugi was organizing a food drive. She plans to collect food to feed them for at least 5 months and within the 1st month she will work with them to find ways to create a sustainable food source so that they NEVER have to eat cats again.

You can become part of her food drive by collecting food (dry foods are best) from family, friends, supermarkets, etc and she will take it to the IDP’s in Ndaragwa on Sunday the 22nd of May.

The food can be dropped at these locations:
