Protect 1800 people on Kokwa Island from Malaria

Kokwa community once again is disappointed as the county government did not keep promise as earlier promised.  They had hoped that the dispensary will be in operational as from October as the promise was but to their surprise less has been done towards finishing, stocking and staffing the dispensary to serve the need community in Kokwa Island.  The volunteer nurse is working hard to assist the community which involves her walking through the rocky terrain during the night to assist the mothers delivering babies in their huts.  This has been a challenge since the Island is very rocky, dark and risks attack by the snakes, crocodile’s hippopotamus among other wild animals in the Island.  Most of the families in the Island live in mud grass thatched huts which are very small and shared by all family members therefore not very hygiene for delivery but since the Island does not have an operational maternity at the moment, these mothers have no choice but to deliver in their small huts sometimes without assistant by the nurse or qualified person.  Since they don’t have reliable source of income, they cannot afford to go to Marigat General Hospital where they can get delivery services.  For these and many other health related issues, the community appeals to the County Government and well-wishers to consider finishing, stocking and staffing the dispensary so that they can benefit from the services as it is their right.  The area is very dry at the moment and since they received very little rainfall last year, makes the situation even worse.  It is our hope that the county government will put into consideration Kokwa Community towards health issues and improve the current status.  We thank all the well-wishers who have considered supporting the community and we look forward to more support in this New Year.

Help Educate 330 Mukinyai School Orphans, Kenya

Some of our beneficiaries from Mukinyai primary sat for their final exams in November 2016 and they are expected to join secondary schools in January 2016.  Parents and guardians are in the process of sourcing school fees for them though it is very challenging.  Most of them are small-scale farmers who mainly depend on farming for source of income.  Last year farmers were challenged by the harsh climate change which resulted in reduced yields and in some areas total crop failure.  This has been a challenge to the small-scale farmers and they have to look for another alternative to source income which includes acquiring loans.  Some of them have approached us for support but due to limited resources, we have not been able to meet their request and instead refer them to other organizations and other institutions like banks for support.  We would wish to support these families but unfortunately, we are a bit low on resources and not in a position to accommodate more scholarships beneficiaries.   This year we will work hard towards funds raising so that we can support more disadvantaged people in our society and especially on education and community livelihood.  We call upon well-wishers to join us in improving living standards of the needy people in our society.  We also thank all those who have supported us and request them to extend their support even this year.

Improve Livelihoods of 225 HIV-affected families

Our beneficiaries are proceeding on well with their projects though with various challenges.  The year had many challenges and short rains really affected them.  It has been dry in most parts of the country and farmers were really affected.  It is now raining and farmers are now planting new crops as most of their previous crops were affected by the drought.  We have some of our beneficiaries with seeds and planting materials.  Although we did not have enough seeds to support them, we hope they will benefit from the on-going rains to enable them harvest enough food for their families and save seeds for the next season to reduce the current challenge.  Our beneficiaries are hardworking and determined and they are happy the long waited rain is now available and they have been able to plant their crops.  We will consider conducting more trainings to empower our beneficiaries on areas of value addition, seed saving etc.  We thank all the well-wishers for their kind support and encourage them to consider supporting our communities further.
