Project Report | Jul 27, 2020
One family every month

By Noor Abdulqadir | Acting ED

Kenya, like the rest of the world, has been affected by the Covid19 pandemic. The number of cases is rising sharply and we are definitely on the upward climb. Marsabit has 3 confirmed cases now, but overall Kenya now has 16,643 cases (July 22, 2020), an increase of 13,654 cases since June 9, 2020 when there were 2,989 cases. The President announced an end to the lockdown of 3 Counties including Nairobi  on July 6, 2020, and allowed up to 100 worshippers to congregate for prayers in places like mosques and churches. The nighttime curfew will continue nationwide up to August 2020. 

In addition to this, Marsabit has faced another challenge. 29 people have been killed and 28 injured (as per our own count) in shootings in Marsabit County between March 13 and July 7, 2020. A few people have been arrested. Combined with the current Coronavirus crisis, it is presenting more challenges to our work, especially our ability to make physical field visits to communities. The situation was tense but things are much calmer now, though people still take precautions. 

The pandemic and the insecurity have affected the economic situation of most people and the poor are the most affected ones. With this project, we have been receiving support that has helped us reach one family for the past few months. The family has been able to receive a cash transfer of $10 (about 1000 shillings) every month that has enabled them to purchase food items for 7 family members. While this is not sufficient for them, it has helped provide the most basic food items for the household. 

We hope that with more support, we will be able to support families like this one with more cash and be able to reach more people.
