Unlike the developed world, there is little financial help from the government during the COVID-19 crisis and many of Kenya’s poorest are unable to earn a living during lock-down. As Jacob, the DGS Director, put it – “in Kenya more people may die from starvation than from Coronavirus“.
Thanks to a very generous donation from sponsor Shaun Thornley, Destiny Garden School were able to make a third distribution of Food Parcels to the families of the most disadvantaged DGS children. This time we included families of former DGS children who are now in high school or university and 325 Food Parcels were made up. We were also able to increase the quantity of food as follows which will hopefully feed the families up until July.
- 5kg Rice
- 2 litres Oil
- 3kg Maize Flour
- 1kg Sugar
- 4kg Beans
- Multipurpose Soap
Boaz, the DGS Manager, produced a video showing scenes of the third distribution which this time took place on the school grounds; it includes a special thank you to all sponsors and supporters, and to Shaun for the third distribution – see this link.
