COVID 19 RELIEF
The Corona virus has arrived in Kenya. International borders are now closed. Schools too are now closed. Gatherings of 50+ are prohibited. Therefore Makindu Children’s Center is now closed.
WE MUST FEED THE CHILDREN!
Providing proper nutrition is critical for our extremely vulnerable population. So instead of daily feedings at the Children’s Center, we will distribute groceries to the kids’ households. With an average household size of 5, this aid will reach around 1,550 needy hungry people. This will also help ensure that these 1,550 people will be able to remain socially distant from others in the community, to help flatten the curve of COVID 19 infection rate.
Food included in this emergency relief package is maize, beans, rice, cooking oil, cowpeas (for the HIV infected, for added protein), and salt.
$50 WILL BUY A MONTH OF GROCERIES
Makindu Children’s Program currently supports 565 orphaned and vulnerable children with daily food, education, healthcare, psycho-social services, trauma support and crisis intervention, advocacy, and shelter in guardian homes.
