Project Report | Aug 10, 2023
A report on our weekly food hamper recipients

By Jennifer Hughes-Bystrom | Founder/CEO

Springs of Hope Foundation's Kijiji Mission Project, visited Murogi slums on the outskirts of Nakuru City to do a food distribution today. Most of the people living in the slums don’t have jobs. They depend on casual work, which is rare to come by these days with the high cost of living. The elderly have no one to look after them as their children left to look for greener pastures in other towns.  The group was anxiously waiting for our arrival and were more than grateful for our visit. They told us that most of them had no food in their homes and some had spent days on an empty stomach. Some elderly sent their grandchildren to collect the food on their behalf as they were bedridden. Pastor Ben organized the venue at a good-hearted lady’s homestead. Ivy our volunteer together with Antoinette did the distribution and all went on well as planned. All thanked the hands that giveth and asked us to visit them more often.

We are so grateful to you, our generous supporters for making our food distributions possible. Whether it’s doing our larger distributions to the more remote areas of Kenya or just reaching out to 90 of our elderly, disabled, or single moms, our neighbors in the surrounding slums. I would like to say a huge Asante Sana for your generous, continued support of our work at the Springs of Hope Foundation.

Warmest blessings,

Jennifer Hughes-Bystrom
