Chapati for the Holidays!

Making chapati is one of the most beloved holiday traditions in rural eastern Kenya. Kids and aunties gather in kitchens or around cookfires and share stories and laughter, while kneading and rolling the flatbread and frying it on the fire. Kids learn their culture, their tribal traditions, and relish the family and community bonding that happens over meals shared. 

With the loss of jobs from the pandemic, the relentless drought, and COVID related delivery problems, getting food to the families for the holidays will be difficult but is so very important, this year especially. We have 317 families to support and hope to provide them all with a holiday food basket of maize, beans, flour, sugar and cooking oil. It is so humbling and heartening that a basket of such simple food can be so precious and bring such joy to an impoverished family in need. Everyone deserves to experience the joy of holidays. 

Each of these kids pictured is desperately poor, and will be so very grateful for your support. Thank you for bringing joy to their holidays, and their favorite treat to their tummies.
