We Made it Through 2020

The last quarter of 2020 was very tough for our work as well as for Kenya as a whole. The second wave of COVID-19 hit East Africa and Kenya was not spared. Kenyan healthcare system is not able to handle the rapid surge of new cases of COVID 19. The country was affected negatively in al aspects but particularly socially and economically.

 

This brought about serious impact on our work and on the health of our clients i.e., both physically and mentally. HAART Kenya has been following the government regulations to curb the spread of the coronavirus. HAART has therefore developed an internal COVID-19 protocol that was shared to all the staff members for them to follow and adhere to. COVID-19 has shifted HAART’s engagement activities with stakeholders, partners, community members and the staff from physical meetings to online engagements. 

 

Notwithstanding the challenges that were unanticipated due to Covid-19 pandemic HAART Kenya adapted to new ways of offering their services to the community and clients.

 

During this time HAART Kenya reopened 160 closed cases of survivors of human trafficking after they reached out in distress and were supported with basic needs and rent. Out of the 160 HAART went ahead to economically empower 18 survivors to start up small businesses thus enhancing economic independence of the survivors.

HAART continued to offer teletherapy to victims of trafficking through a team of dedicated psychotherapists.

Schools were reopened on the 12th of October 2020 after seven months break due to Covid-19. A continuum education support was offered to 6 girls who were reintegrated shelter cases. The six girls were in boarding schools both primary and secondary schools i.e., 3 girls in primary and 3 in secondary schools respectively.

HAART Kenya is optimistic on re-opening the Shelter by End of March 2021. This will help bridge the gap on shelters and offer comprehensive, trauma informed care to girl victims of trafficking of ages 6- 18 years.

 

Your support through 2020 and January 2021 has gone a long way in impacting the lives of our victims and survivors
