Covid-19 Relief

We all know these are unprecedented times. But while States in America are beginning to open up so that life can go back to normal, life in Kenya is still very much at a standstill. At the beginning of June, the President of Kenya ordered that the country will stay in lockdown for another 30 days. There is a nation-wide curfew that makes movement difficult. Markets have been closed for months to mitigate the spread of the virus. Food is scarce and the prices have skyrocketed thanks to a locust infestation. And to top it all off, there's been extreme flooding that has washed out roads and devastated crops.

Due to the closure of schools because of Covid-19 and the danger of spreading the virus if we were to bring together builders to work on constructing another toilet, we have had to put our project on pause. As soon as things open up and we believe it is safe to do so, we will resume our project and begin building the second toilet. 

In the meantime, that does not mean we aren't doing anything. After doing a small-scale food distribution in April, we realized how crucial this effort was. During the months of June, July, and August, we are focusing our regular program funding on keeping the 36 families that we support alive through monthly food and sanitation distributions. Each monthly package will include 50lbs of corn flour, 8lbs of green grams, and one gallon of cooking oil, as well as face masks and hand washing soap. The cost of one of these packages, one month's worth of food, is roughly $60. In the pictures attached, you will see documentation of the first of our distributions which happened earlier this month.
