We have already helped them with immediate relief for food and mattresses but they will need more food and clothing and bedding etc... also because of the Covid 19 lock down in Kenya this makes going to town to look for work for the day which is usually how they live day to day they are forced to stay on their plot and try to grow vegetables but with flooding this has become harder... Please help out this young family who have no bred-winner, but do their best to survive.
