Fighting COVID-19 in Kenya
We have supported poor widows and orphans in 14 villages with face masks, hand sanitisers and prayers as they fight the Covid 19 virus that broke out in February 2020.

Kenya Hope Charity chairman Brian Humphreys who has visited Kenya 15 times in 16yrs is deeply concerned: “In Kenya there is no NHS, no food banks, no furlough scheme, and less than 40% of families have access to clean water. Our successful child sponsorship programme at only £15mth had given 57 poor orphans hope of an education plus one hot meal per day but because of the war in the Ukraine, the price of basic food items and petrol has more than doubled driving many families living in poverty to living in extreme poverty. With more and more widows/caregivers not being able to pay the small food levy for their schoolchildren, school feeding programmes are in danger of collapsing, and many Kenyans could succumb to hunger even if they don’t catch the virus.”
