In Kenya, communities are locked down and schools are closed. Social distancing is impossible for people living in overcrowded conditions and hand washing is a challenge where there is no running water. Kenya is also facing a devastating locust invasion at the moment and having to cope with the impact this is having on food availability and cost.
So, we’re working to make sure that the children and families we support are looked after during the crisis by providing direct cash transfers: giving money directly to families in crisis so that they can afford essentials like food and rent. In the communities we support, we have at least 250 families identified as needing this support, requiring us to raise an additional £2000 a month until the crisis is over. A donation of £2 will support a family for a week. Just £25 will support a family through 3 months of this emergency.

Thank you for your support.
Next week, Kipawa will be 10 years old! Since we can't party with you all in person, we'd love to celebrate our lockdown birthday with you remotely!
Please send us your photos and videos to wish us Happy Birthday! We'd love to hear you singing Happy Birthday To Kipawa or to see photos of the birthday cake you've baked us or the birthday picture or banner you have painted. You could even have a 10th birthday party for us and send us the video evidence! Email your photos and videos and messages to firstname.lastname@example.org.
HAPPY 10TH BIRTHDAY TO US!!!
