These are unsettled and unsettling times for all of us. We're reminded of how we're connected as we share fears, but also as we share caring and compassion around the globe.
The Children and Youth Empowerment Centre, along with the rest of Kenya and the world, has had to make adjustments to ensure the safety of the young people in our care. We've ensured we can maintain distances, and we're planting more vegetables and tubers in anticipation of future food shortages. We're also reaching out to highly vulnerable families in our neighborhood to provide what support we can. While shutting down the economy helps slow the spread of the virus, it's devastating for families that literally live hand to mouth.
Your support allows us to keep our children safe with nutritious food and medical care, and to provide a bit of a safety net for our youth who have lost their jobs. Together we can protect the people and institutions we love.
