Life's struggles for the poorest in Kenya

Peter lost his wife several years ago and now raises 5 children by himself. He works odd jobs when he can find them and grows some crops on his small plot of farmland. The time required to haul water, gather firewood, cook meals for the children, and provide child care before and after school limits his ability to earn the money he needs for food and school expenses for the children. The plight of Peter and his children was greatly improved when a generous donor offered to pay for a monthly supplemental food ration and the school expenses for the children. Two of the children are in a pre-school, and 3 are in primary school. During a recent Global Health Partnerships (GHP) site visit, Peter expressed his gratitude to the donor for this support, saying “Thank you for the food assistance and for helping me to educate my children.”       

Twenty-four families are enrolled in the GHP program of feeding the poorest and receive a monthly food ration, plus the support needed for their children to stay in school. GHP has identified other families like Peter’s who are in great need of this assistance provided by this project.

GHP has also continued the outreach clinics that provide vital services for young children in remote villages. In the months of May and June 2016 (July information is not yet available), 207 children were seen in the GHP outreach clinics, and 15 of them were treated for malnutrition through the therapeutic feeding program.
