A Season of Challenges

By Ian Wilson | Director

We are still languishing in the heat of an exceptionally long dry hot season.  This has brought drought to regions to the north of us where drought is becoming more of a norm than an occasional disaster. This alone is a reason for a surge in the numbers of families and children seeking help in the urban centre of Kitale and the adjacent farmland where rainfall is more frequent.

Unfortunately, we are not just contending with the effects of ongoing drought.  We are still being impacted by the affects of Covid 19 on local businesses and household income, not to mention its impact on regular donors who are struggling to send support to us as they have all been affected by the financial woes of Covid.

And, to cap it all, Kenya is currently suffering an economic crisis impacting its poorest members.  Our inflation rate is worrying and the worst affected commodities are the basics such as flour, oil, sugar, cereals.  Some items have increased by as much as 25 to 30 percent even though the overall inflation rate is much lower.  Fuel costs have been creeping up as they are globally.  

Kenya faces national elections in early August and we await their outcome - hoping that the results will be met with peace and not a return of the post-election violence witnessed in the past.  This year is already one of struggle and we sincerely hope that the discontent and worry we see around at the moment will not translate into taking out frustrations after the election.  In the meantime, we are doing our best to reintegrate children off the streets as quickly as we can with the funds available to try and reduce the potential of children being caught up in such issues in August.

2022 is bringing us many challenges but, with your help, we can continue to make life better for many of the children desperately needing help in Kitale and its surrounds.  Thank you for your continued support!
