Faraja Foundation this morning donated foodstuffs to the victims of floods that have reigned havoc in the North Rift, South Rift, Nyanza, Lower Eastern and Western Regions of Kenya. These donations were presented to the Kenya Red Cross Society which is going to help in the distribution based on its presence and network in all the 47 counties in Kenya. The Kenya Red Cross Society maps areas whose residents are in need of support. The donation comprised of foodstuffs that can be able to sustain 100 families for one month. Support can be given in the form of cash where families are given the option to choose what to buy for their households while others are given in kind, especially in areas that are very remote and vulnerable. Faraja Foundation finds itself in a unique space, leveraging on its Humanitarian assistance and Emergency Response pillar to help Kenyans have less of a burden even during the wake of the Corona Virus Pandemic. The President of the Republic of Kenya, HE Uhuru Kenyatta launched and applauded the Adopt A Family Initiative and urged Kenyans in the spirit of giving to continue giving to the less fortunate in the society.
We continue to open our donation baskets to all to give and let us all unite and stand with the victims of floods, and the inmates in prison who also need support to maintain high levels of hygiene.
