Isiolo Empowerment Centre, Kenya

 

GHNI-Kenya has taken on the challenge of fighting COVID-19 in the best way we know: in and around the villages in which we are based, our Global Hope Empowerment Centre is doing what they know best by making face masks for those who cannot afford them due to the economic situation which has affected everyone all over the world. 

 

Currently in Kenya if one is found without a face mask:

  • 1. They will be put into quarantine at their own expense for 14 days.
  • 2. They must pay 13,000 shillings for a COVID-19 test for themself and whoever lives with them.
  • 3. They will be charged with breaking the law.

 

As an organisation, we have provided over 400 face masks to villages like Attir and Maendeleo, as well as provided more to some street families in Isiolo Town. In this way, we are restoring hope and helping many who cannot afford this crucial but simple protective tool, and we will keep on rendering additional aid until this crisis has passed.

 

Thank you!
