Fighting COVID-19 Together

When a breadwinner is imprisoned, their biggest worry is their family that has been left behind especially their children. Currently the organization is supporting 158 children with more than 72 families/households who are mainly headed by grandmothers and mothers faced with effects of imprisonment where the bread winner is not available anymore to provide or guide the family during such emergency situations like the COVID – 19 pandemic effects. 

We are extremely grateful to friends and everyone who’s reaching out to the inmates and their families especially during this time.

How We Are Coping

Kindness is a wonderful way to let another struggling soul know that there is still love in this world. 
  • We are in need of more support for the children at Wells of Hope Junior School; food and medicine.
  • Out of the 52 families that strive to get what to eat, 12 families have received food supplies in monetary terms (USD15). 40 families are in need of food; the caregivers are extremely worried for their well-being especially for the children under their care. With your contribution, you will provide food to a family that is starving.
  • Over 400 inmates are living with HIV & AIDS. Babies in prison, expectant women and elderly inmates are in need of more food supplies. Currently, the correctional centres are closed to any visitors; even charities and inmates relatives who used to provide the inmates with special nutritional food.
  • The formerly incarcerated women especially those who had just moved into the community lack food. Some had petty jobs from which they had made some savings, but unfortunately their savings are now finished and due to the pandemic, the jobs are no more.

WELLS OF HOPE KENYA

Following closure of schools in March, children with parents in prison continue to remain in dilemma as Coronavirus sweeps across the country. A big number of households in Kenya are headed by children as a result of parental imprisonment; and are experiencing high level of poverty and most children end up joining street life due to lack of basic needs.

The lock down has disrupted several sectors. Most people are now working from home; companies have been closed. Our children and their families are going without food; if they are lucky, it is one meal a day, which is breakfast. We appreciate any support; to donate, click the donate button below;

We are extremely grateful to you for your continued support for the work that we do; especially during this time. We are hopeful that this situation shall come to pass very soon.
