The community we work with is extremely vulnerable to the harm COVID-19 will inflict on people. Most of the students’ parents and guardians have pre-existing health conditions such as HIV/AIDS, they all have limited income (usually earned by performing casual labor that has already evaporated) and in the slums, there is no such thing as “social distance”.
We have increased our budget for emergency food aid and believe it will be sorely needed in the coming weeks. A donation of kes 1000 can provide a food packet that feeds a family of four for one week. We have approximately 300 families dependent on our program.
