COVID-19 – Our future is in your Hands
The outbreak of the COVID-19 virus means that the events we usually run to raise the funds that support our community development work in Kenya have to stop.
Can you imagine what it is like for the communities that we work with now when the most important means of preventing transmission is to keep washing our hands?
How can you do that when you don’t have water? We need your donations please – there are several ways you can help:
