Our ongoing food hamper program to the elderly, disabled and single mothers.

I had the privilege of participating in my first food hamper distribution to the elderly, single mothers, and those living with disabilities within the slums in our neighborhood. We began this program when COVID first arrived in Kenya, and most businesses were closed. While some businesses are slowly recovering, many small businesses in our neighborhood were forced to close permanently. As always, the trickle-down affects the poorest, the women who do laundry and cleaning for the local small business owners. The elderly will continue to struggle with food insecurity as there is little government assistance. Many go without food for over a day.
For as long as we can afford, we will always offer our food hamper assistance program to the elderly, disabled, and single mothers.
Elderly grandmothers often find themselves left with the responsibility of raising their small, abandoned grandchildren.
