COVID - 19 UPDATES

By Rose Bugusu | Director

Our children helping as we prepare to do our food
Our children helping as we prepare to do our food

Kenya has not been exempted from the ongoing worldwide pandemic. They are sad to report that the schools are still closed until next year.   The government stated that the schools will open once all the COVID -19 measures have been put in place.

The children are out of school and their lives are not the same.  Most of the children are happy when they are at school. The village children are going through a lot of difficulties as they have no food.  Many children depend on the meals served at school, this makes it hard for them to stay at home without a meal.  Families are surviving on one meal per day and the children are finding it hard.

We have tried our best as an organization to support not only the children from our school and home but the children in the community. Since the month of March we have been giving food baskets to widows, widowers, and poor families. The program has been of big help to the community members, especially children. The basket comprised Maize flour, sugar, tea leaves, salt, cooking oil, and soap.  The soap was a must because with COVID – 19 we need to wash our hands with soap every time and some families have cannot afford soap.  They would rather buy maize flour than soap. 

We would like to thank GlobalGiving for their generosity towards our food program.  Tumaini benefitted from the grants and we were able to reach out to more families in the village.  Our food distribution has benefitted 100 people directly and more than 500 people indirectly.   

We would like to thank all our supporters who have continued to send their monthly donation during these hard times.  This has helped us feed our children who have been placed in families and those outside Tumaini fraternity.  Kindly share with friends about the good work you are doing.  This is the only way we can be able to build our donor family and reach more suffering children.
