Masks 4 Kenya Kids with Disabilities

Masks 4 Kenya Kids with Disabilities

Why we need your help

We are raising money to provide urgently needed Covid Masks and handwashing stations for disabled school children in Western Kenya - this has now been extended to other, mainstream schools  - the aim now is to cover at least 6 schools in total.
Our initial aim was to equip the children of St Anthony's School for the Deaf, Bungoma County with a school roll of 400 children (masks delivered 1st March). Then Nalondo CBM Special National Secondary School for the Physically Handicapped with a roll of 384 (masks to be delivered w/b 8th March). 
The basic requirement is for two washable cloth masks for each child, up to 6 x large jerrycans per school with foot pedal operated taps and a decent supply of sanitising liquid soap - also dispensed with a foot pedal  The total cost of this for each school would be around £1,000. The masks are being made locally to regulation standard and the cost 125KES of each (currently £0.80) has been reduced from 150KES due to the bulk orders we have been able to make. As of the beginning of March, we now have the funds to cover associated primary schools. After consultation with our Kenyan delivery partners, we have altered our longer term aim for this appeal of building rainwater harvesting tanks for the schools. It was deemed that the extra money we have raised would be better put to use in continued purchase of immediate Covid ppe.
The Covid situation in Kenya is more than worrying, with widescale vaccine relief on the far horizon and education already having taken a big hit. The government is now requiring all schools to teach, whilst enforcing handwashing and ensuring that all children are equipped with washable masks. There is no budget to cover this.

We must not forget that despite our own problems, there are communities that are in a far worse situation than ours. The Covid pandemic is global and affects all. We can all make a difference however small to help those less fortunate than ourselves.
