JJF COVID-19 food relief in Kenya

Update posted by Elena Parfenova On Nov 26, 2020

We are now scheduling to have one more food distribution, which should target 500 most vulnerable families in the informal settlements. We plan to organize it before December 11th. This pre-Christmas distribution goal is to deliver food to the families on the edge of hardship with young children and single parent, and with very ill or disabled children.

The total budget of this distribution is USD 10,700: we already have about USD 4,700 consisting of what we have raised and the other part that we add from our budget, so we need to raise additional USD 6,000 to be able to organize such a distribution. We are asking all our friends and partners -- let's come together and make it possible. It will make Christmas time so much different for those who are struggling the most now, especially the little kids.

(The food that each family receives will sustain them for about two weeks, the package duration is calculated for the family of 5 people)
