Covid-19 impact

By Rose Bugusu | Director

We were optimistic! The year 2020 looked brighter until last month when our government announced the first corona positive case. Things changed and everything became dark. As per now we have 216 cases and 9 death.

It is hard for everyone and we are praying that this may end soon. We are staying at home and we are trying our best to keep the children safe.  Our children are remaining in doors and we are keeping them busy, it has hard when they are not in school. We have not had any case in our neighborhood, but we can’t go out without a mask, we can’t attend any funeral nor any gathering.  All the open markets are closed and we must go to town to buy groceries.  The food prices have gone up, all the businessmen have taken advantage of the pandemic and it’s not looking good.

People on the rural areas live day by day, most of them can’t have food on their tables if they have not worked on a farm which earns them a $1.5 a day for their food. It has not been raining and therefor no working on the farms. We look at the situation and feel most of the people might die from hunger and not covid-19.  Our children from the community might be going through the same, we shared the food we had for the children from the orphanage hoping that this pandemic will end soon but it looks as if it’s just starting.  We also gave out soaps because there is washing of hands and many can’t afford soaps.  Old people come to our gate every morning asking for food which we cannot provide for right now. As you pray for the world pray for us and the children living in the community.

We have been hit hard but all in all we thank you for your continue support.  With your support we can reach out to those outside our circle and change a life. This pandemic has brought us together than before. We will be grateful for those who are willing to give towards this need to enable us reach out to more families in the village. Thank you
