Covid-19 pandemic Food Donations
On March 13, 2020, Kenya reported the first case of Covid – 19 virus outbreaks. The outbreak and spread of the disease have greatly negatively impacted on the Kenyan economy at large. The outbreak in Kenya led to shutdown of Schools, businesses and other opportunities. To those dwelling in Mathare slums has been a great challenge on the livelihood of the slum dwellers that depend on their daily earnings from doing menial jobs like washing clothes and cleaning. This has made it hard for them to put food on the table hence facing hunger problems.
We have parents/guardians coming to the office every day looking for food support; we thank God because we have had some friends who have supported the initiative of helping with food although not enough. KTSSC is greatly grateful to all the well-wishers who have chipped in donating food stuffs to the Mathare slums. The donations have been passed to the needy families in the Mathare slums, at least for one week they have had something to eat.
