The corona virus has a serious impact on people who are already in difficulty and who live in great poverty. For many families in Kenya, coronavirus restrictions have made food, water and shelter access even more precarious.
The most affected are those who live in slums and in the country. They live from hand to mouth. There is more fear of dying of hunger than of Covid-19. Cases have been reported about people in the Kibera slum in Nairobi who died fighting a large crowd for food provided by an aid agency.
To help the most vulnerable and needy people to observe self-quarantine measures Favor Förderverein intervention strategies has to satisfy the immediate basic needs.
"Isolation is not an option for the poor"
Therefore, Favour Förderverein supports children, families, and communities who need help most.
Our contribution to Covid-19 prevention:
We continually provide families living in slums with packages that contain various durable and nutritious foods, masks, hygiene products, etc.
We install handwashing stations and provide soap in places that many community members visit frequently. This includes clinics, hospitals, open markets, police stations, etc. In this context, the people we meet in carrying out these projects also receive hygiene products, masks and the much-needed COVID-19 information.
With the help of the Gideon Accent(CBO)'s Mask sewing project, we are distributing reusable masks to families in need, especially to those who have to work despite the COVID 19 situation.
Water is needed to wash your hands, so we provide slum communities in Nairobi with clean water.
