Family Food Bundle
Children living in the slums of Kenya depend on the two meals a day they receive from our partner schools.
But when COVID-19 lockdowns hit, these children were suddenly cut off from this food. The situation became even harder when these students’ parents, who were already struggling to support their kids, were largely unable to work because of shutdowns.
To help these kids and their families survive in the face of severe hunger, we’re giving monthly food bundles to families. Bundles include 2 kg (4.4 lbs) of rice, 2kg (4.4 lbs) of beans, 2kg (4.4 lbs) of porridge and 4 kg (8.8 lbs) of maize.
“Children don’t even understand. They know there’s COVID, but when they’re hungry—they’re hungry.” –Magdaline Oguto, co-founder and director of MCO, our primary partner in the Mathare slum.
