COVID 19 CONTINUATION

ReJenga continues to be committed on the project to make rehabilitation accessible to the people in rural Kisumu and the surrounding areas. Due to the unprecedented times and COVID 19, and stay home orders we have not been able to progress towards our goals. Kenya continues to have a spike in Covid 19 cases and the Delta variant continues to spread. There have been no testing for COVID 19, and ReJenga believes in keeping everyone in the rural community safe. However, we continue to work on fundraising through corporate matching to have the funds towards our goal and building the rehab center in rural Siaya District. 
While health outcomes for people with disabilities continues to be a challenge, and there is difficulty around access to and quality of care, as well as low job satisfaction among community health workers. ReJenga will need to be focusing on strengthening community health worker performance by investing in their education, training, and management capacity. 

Poverty, and Disability in Kenya

67% of the disabled population lives in poverty 2.97 million people

52% of the total population lives in poverty 23.06 million people

 Continue to Stay Safe and support children and adults with disabilities in rural Kenya.
