Locusts invasions, floods, diseases and now coronavirus – those were the hardships the people of Kenya had to deal with in the past few months. Hunger and despair are growing by the day. Kenyan media is reporting on more than 13,000 displaced people due to severe flooding in Kisumu county.

Many woke up in overflooding houses. The water left a path of devastation, so people grabbed whatever they could. Often, they could save very little. Hundreds of families are now homeless because of the floods. Important road connections have also been destroyed.

At the same time the country is also facing the coronavirus. The floods have worsened their hygienic standards. This makes it more difficult to adopt essential measures for the prevention of illness. Floods have also devastated the fields and washed away the newly planted rice. People are now facing the danger of hunger. What makes matters worse is many of the East African countries facing locust invasions of biblical proportions. Huge swarms roam the country devouring the crops. Residents fear the outbreak of diseases such as cholera and malaria.

Our local partner CIVS (Centre for International Voluntary Service) is aiming to help the ones mostly hit by the current crisis. The target group of program “ADOPT A FAMILY” are mainly poor, elderly people and people with health problems. With a donation of 1 euro CIVS can reach one family with the distribution of soap, masks and food packages, along with basic training of hygiene which reduces the risk of infection.

Actions such as these are essential in curbing the spread of the virus across the country. Support us with your donation!
