Thank you for continuing to support the children of Makindu. We care for many kids who are HIV+ and we are so grateful to be able to, thanks to you. On top of the high risk of the kids getting COVID-19, they also need optimal nutrition to stay healthy. Currently, the unemployment in Kenya is at 30% due to COVID-19, and on top of that, Kenya has been experiencing another drought which caused many crops to fail miserably. We were able to install a solar powered borehole at the Centre, so luckily some of our crops have succeeded like kale, eggplant and tomatoes. We are so happy about being able to send the HIV+ kids home with some fresh veggies along with their usual health checkup, vitamin supplements and receiving antiretroviral medication. To keep ahead of the drought we want to be able to provide nutrition for those in need. We are also working to get the school equipped with better sanitation standards.The school is lacking in soap, water and sanitizer. We so appreciate you continuing to support the children of Makindu and giving them hope.
