We're writing this on behalf of Emurutoto maasai community due the current pandemic situation that has blurred the whole world in general. The pandemic had been accompanied by a lot of challenges that deteriorated the livelihood of the maasai people a long the maasai mara region who normally fully depends on tourists in their hand to mouth daily income. Children of tender age, young and old people have all been affected. Mamas(ladies) mostly depends on beads,artifact and ornaments for money exchange with the tourists in the greater Maasai Mara game reserve but due to the devoid of tourists, they completely have no other means of income for their daily expenses and all have gone back to their rural villages having nothing to depends on but only on their livestock products and those without them are starving and rely on well wishers donations which are very rare.
The maasai people in Kenya are a small indigenous group that's mostly known for their pastoral life cycle whereby they move from one region to another looking for green pastures and water for their livestock. They follow the year's seasons,moving with their animals from one region to another.
Currently,the big portion settling in Kenya are found in the Rift Valley region, the northern part of Kenya and a long the world most famous game reserve (Maasai Mara). They're so friendly to the wild animals,that is why they are surrounding most of the game reserves. They have created space for wild animals due to the value of these wild animals which earn them foreign and local currencies from the tourists. Due to the sadden disappearance of tourists, we are afraid that these people might turn and start killing these wildlife for food and this has also brought our attention to look for alternative measures on how to help this community,the wildlife and their habitats from destruction. We therefore plead for your help regardless of how small or big it is,be assured it will help safe a life. We reach to this idea after following the greater impact of the covid-19 in the region. Every single donation will be well utilized for the benefit of this community.
With village elders and local administration officials who include the chiefs and the religious leaders,we will reach to the most vulnerable people who include the single mothers,the orphans and the poor families which cannot be able to put a single meal on their tables due to this pandemic hardship. We look forward to offer basics needs like food;maize flour, beans,rice,kales,cabbages, potatoes, cooking oil,salt, water, masks,sanitizers and awareness about the covid-19 pandemic in grass roots.
We are targeting to reach upto six hundred families or more in various families and local "manyattas"(maasai cultural villages) within the maasai mara triangle region.
