With barely enough water to drink, it’s all the more difficult to stay safe during a pandemic. In communities facing worsening droughts, handwashing seems unimaginable. But thanks to your generosity, our partners at the Indigenous Information Network (IIN) are able to support six drought-affected communities in Kenya. They are distributing masks and setting up handwashing stations with soap by using water tanks previously provided by MADRE to collect rainwater. Now, in addition to dispensing drinking water, the tanks make handwashing -- a critical way to prevent the spread of the virus -- possible.
Not only does your generosity help meet the immediate needs of these communities, it has also enabled IIN’s network of Indigenous women leaders across Africa to share vital information and urge the government to respond to the pandemic. IIN’s multi-pronged approach demonstrates their ability to leverage their strength and leadership to save lives. Thank you for making this vital work possible!
