According to figures from 2011, around 300 Kenyans die daily because of HIV/AIDS; 600,000 receive ARV treatment even though 500,000 are in need of it, and the number of orphans that lost their parents due to HIV/AIDS is from 990,000 to 1.4 million. High prices of food are significant in the everyday life of the Kenyans. An estimated 5.6 million people face uncertainty about everyday food supplies due to the rise in prices of food and fuel. To overcome the price increase every day, people must decrease daily food intake or buy cheap, available food. There are many critical cases of malnutrition. As far as 25% of children suffer from acute malnutrition in some Kenyan districts.
