The third wave of Covid-19 hit the country from mid-March 2021 leading the government to impose a travel ban to some counties and a night curfew. The school Easter holiday being scheduled for 4 weeks in April, it seemed that schools would not resume for the next term. Fortunately, the restrictions were reduced and school resumed in May 2021.
Strict measures of social distancing and good hygiene and sanitation remain enforced in the schools with a restricted visitation policy. These measures are in an effort to contain the spread and ensure children are safe in the schools.
The DCC has embarked on a project to ensure Athi special school has adequate clean water through sinking a borehole. The intention is to complete the project within 3 months so that the challenges of looking for water shall be in the past.
The photos in this report show some of the work carried out over the past 3 months including therapy sessions at home.
