JJF COVID-19 food relief in Kenya

Update posted by Jonathan Adrian Jackson On Aug 12, 2020

Today we will be visiting Paradise Children's Home in Kibera, which is the biggest informal settlement (slum) community in Nairobi. Our team will examine the situation and will identify the needs for food in the Children's house, so that we can plan and prepare properly for our food delivery there this week.

Please donate any amount you can now, it will help us buy and bring more food to the most vulnerable children.

Today JJF team, together with the Nairobi City Stars Football team, was preparing food packages for our next week distribution. The space was provided to us by the World Hope Center Academy. We start our next distribution on Monday August 3rd and will be delivering food during the whole week...each day, aiming to help 870 households. Each of your donation is used to purchase and deliver food to families struggling to survive during these times.

Thank you for all your support and for being with us!

Dear JJF friends, while visiting the communities and delivering food to the vulnerable households, it came to our attention that there is another very big problem at the moment...appaling medical situation.

There are a lot of people in very bad and critical health condition with basically no medical access, no health workers who could help them, and no basic medicine available. The situation is trully terrible. Please have a look at the video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Zsgp7KbZKFA

We don’t have a solution at the moment; however we think it is instrumental to share this situation during COVID crisis with all of you and look for a way to help those people together.

One of the ideas we have is:
1. put together medical kits with essencial medicine that we can deliver together with food
2. organize a team of medical professionals or even students of medicine -- who could come and visit communities with us as volunteers and provide emergency medical aid on place.

In case if you have any suggestions or would like to recommend us any organizations with whom we could partner on this, please email us or leave a comment for us here.

If you would like to donate speciafically to help with this medical situation -- please do here on this page, just leave us a note that this is for the "medical relief".

Thank you a lot.

JJF Team

Dear JJF Friends, thank you so much for all your support! Every contribution means a lot to us, every comment you post gives us new energy, and every $18 donated allows us to buy and deliver food package that will sustain a family of 5 for 10 days. We are now aiming to raise enough funds to deliver food to additional 600 families in need living within the informal settlements. So basically, we aim to collect $10,800 in the coming weeks and hope to be able to bring food to all these families. Thank you again for being with us!
Jonathan, Boaz, Henry, Elena and the whole JJF Team

Over the weekend we have been delivering food to the Rehoboth Blessed Assurance Children's Home. The Nairobi City Stars Football Team was helping us with the food packages delivery, and meeting real foodball players for children was a very special experience. We feel so happy and humble to have this chance to bring not only much needed food and necessities, but also a smile on those children's faces and a hope for the community.

July 2020 -- our main goal now is to make sure that the most effected families within the Nairobi informal settlements (slum) communities have food to eat, to survive this pandemic crisis. We are bringing all our resources to address such an acute problem, and we now need help in order to be able to provide basic food for more families in such a desperate situation. We are confident that with support from donors and friends, the most vulnerable families within the slums will have food to put on their tables for themselves and their children. Every 18 dollars contributed will bring food for a family of 5 people for up to 10 days.

The food packs consists of the following items:

  • 4Kg Maze meal
  • 2kg dry beans
  • 2kg All-purpose baking flour
  • 2kg Rice
  • 2kg Maize grain
  • 2Kg Sugar
  • 1kg Salt
  • 250g Tea
  • 1kg of Famila Uji Mix
  • 1l Vegetable oil
  • 800g Hygiene Soap
  • Two rolls of Premium tissues

Please help us to help more families now!
