The rains have come as a relief to Kenyans. The beginning of good things to come, many are hoping, especially in light of the drought, which has, as of January, affected more than 2 million people. Given our tenacity to want to do something, many people have been wondering how best to reach out to the affected families. My previous post on the situation outlined a Paybill number. This post is more specific and outlines how your contribution can be used to help these families.
The Kenya Red Cross is currently carrying out the ‘Embrace A Family’ campaign, which breaks down what amount helps a family and for what duration.
Here’s a look at the categories:
Kshs 3,000 helps a family for 1 Month
Kshs 6,000 helps a family for 2 Months
Kshs 9,000 helps a family for 3 Months
Kshs 12,000 helps a family for 4 Months
From food to other basic necessities, this money will go a long way in giving some reprieve to the millions who need our help. And it’s doable. For instance, sacrifice lunch or dinner this weekend and send the money to offer support for a family that could do with that money for 1 month. As an option and as an example. Whatever you feel you have to offer will go along way.
