Hope, in the midst of a global pandemic

Kenya’s economy is slowly regaining normalcy. Majority of closed businesses are back in operation, cessation of movement has been lifted and schools were reopened in January, however people living below the poverty line are still feeling the effects of the pandemic. Most of their businesses are unregistered hence it is difficult to access loans from financial institutions. Some survivors lost their jobs and are still struggling to find new jobs.

 

Beneficiaries in our project are still struggling to meet their basic needs. However, the numbers have reduced compared to the previous three months. In this period, November had the highest number of needy cases,51, while December and January had 47. The most sought after need is therapy, food, business startup and medical aid.

 

From November 2020 to January 2021, HAART has managed to startup businesses for 24 survivors. The businesses are to help survivors afford basic needs for their families. HAART offers grants and knowledge to survivors for them to run a successful business. 24 survivors that need food provision were also assisted with basic food supplies to help them get by. There were also 10 survivors that required assistance to pay rent. Additionally, we managed to assist 22 survivors of medical need and offered 34 therapy sessions for those in need of psychosocial support. In January, we were able to support 2 victims in taking their children back to school.  Furthermore, some survivors required that we facilitate transportation, we were able to assist 21 survivors in need of transport.

 

The above mentioned assistance has had a great impact on the lives of our beneficiaries, as the majority of them were depending on well-wishers like you to be able to meet their everyday basic needs. With these donations, families have been able to have food on their tables, a roof over their head and seek medical help when in need and eventually, they have learned better coping mechanisms through therapy sessions.

 

Directly or indirectly the support has reduced the risks of trafficking and re trafficking.

 Asante.
