The Christmas holidays are a time for us to take a break, get together with friends and family, share some good food and reflect on the year gone by. Its also a time we exchange gifts Its a time of giving.
In Kenya, it is also time to harvest Maize which when ground into flour is cooked to become a dish called Ugali - this is the main daily meal with families all over Kenya. In Kericho County, where our work is based, the people are dealing with unexpected rains over the last month which has led to flooding, mud slides, delayed the harvest and in some cases even destroyed the maize. Wet and muddy conditions under foot and damp, wet houses has had a knock-on effect on peoples health and subsequent income. Its not the most ideal end to 2019 for many of the Communities we are working with
Our programmes support the people we work with to build healthier and more resilient communities to access improved health, education and employment opportunities so that when the unexpected happens, like the rains this month, they are stronger and more able to deal with the consequences.
