We have been at the forefront to stop the spread of the novel Corona virus by supporting communities living in Kibera to bulld hand washing facilities. We have also been provding them with information on how people can maintain hygiene.
This is a community led initiative where the community seeks to solve the challenges and compliment of efforts of the government in curbing the spread of Covid_19.
Covid-19 is spreading across the globe with 300,000 confirmed cases and over 10,000 deaths, the virus is literary bringing the world to stand still. Simple, everyday things must stop: freedom of movement, mingling with friends, shaking hands with new acquaintances, or even working alongside our colleagues. However, we are not powerless to stop it. We can and must play our part.
We have so far distributed two hand washing stations in Kibra slum supporting over 1,000 people directly. Kibra slum is characterized by overcrowding. The slum also has limited access to clean water and poor sanitation facilities. Our hope is to support over 50,000 people by end of April.
