Thanks to the generosity of you, our supporters, who have responded so magnificently to our recent appeal, our partner projects now have the money to pay for food parcels for the children in their care. That special food support extends from the larger projects to those smaller ones where we make a contribution to running costs. Mercy, our senior social worker in Meru says:
“On behalf of all my children I appreciate the support during this epidemic. Receive the regards of the guardians. They feel indebted by the sacrifice to provide this basic need of food to them. These are hard times for our kids and their families. I was able to tell when some of them depleted their food because then some would find their way to the feeding program, just to find out if they can get something to eat. It clearly shows how (much) these parcels mean to these children.”
The children’s parents or guardians who live nearby come, in small numbers at a time, to collect the food parcels. Mercy delivers parcels to those who live far away.
