Soon after the pandemic hit, we began to receive requests for emergency food assistance from our refugee partners in Africa. Monthly rations were never enough to stretch through a month. Now Covid lock downs have gutted refugee camp economies that people depended upon to survive.
Thanks to our generous financial partners, we've been able to put funding behind the emergency food assistance program of our refugee church partner in Kakuma camp. We have sent them two transfers of $5,250 in recent months. This has enabled them to provide one month's worth of life-giving food assistance to around 650 people each time. They do the hard work of identifying those most in need of the help and then figuring out how to get the food to them. People from both the refugee camp and the surrounding host community have benefited.
