Our Kenyan communities have been significantly, adversely affected by Covid-19. The average Kenyan family puts food on their table at night through wages earned throughout their day. With the partial lock down which has already closed non- essential services, that means the average Kenyan family has no daily income in which to purchase food. Those that live on subsistence farming have not been exempted from the suffering, with inconsistent rains and even locust ravaging some farms. Hunger has infiltrated many lives and the numbers are increasing exponentially.
This doesn’t even address the many growing medical needs. The Kenyan government recently reported that there are not enough masks to protect our front line medical workers, confronting the pandemic. Many Counties in Kenya are ill equipped to handle the virus in their hospitals. Most don’t even host ICU facilities, with even fewer ventilators and basic equipment, including something as simple and as practical as protective gowns are scarce.
Combined with the lack of National funds, shortage of man power and little to no social services in place to help Kenyans, the most vulnerable in these communities face a bleak future, but there is hope. The light of Christ is beginning to shine as His love is being witnessed in tangible, practical ways.
Through the grace of God, Hungry for Life and the generosity of some partners we have begun to bring some relief and hope to the most vulnerable within our communities. We have put together relief packages that include: Bar soap, salt, sugar, Ugali (A staple in the Kenyan diet) and oil for cooking. We have managed to serve 230 families so far but the need far out-weighs our capacity. Be a part of the solution that God is sending, and join our efforts now!
