Dear Changemakers in Nairobi

Let’s touch the lives of kids who not their will, are abandoned/orphaned or seriously disadvantaged in Turkana.

Turkana stands out as one of the last remaining untouched places on earth.

A drought in this corner of Kenya has stopped all food production and food prices can cost more than a half-day’s-earning. (World Vision).
Due to food insecurity brought about by the persistent droughts, nutritious foods are not an option for the residents. Turkana county is among the most food-insecure places.
The most pressing health problem for Turkana’s children is malnutrition, marked by a deficiency of essential dietary needs.

PLAN:
- Meet over coffee at River Cafe on Saturday (a week before the Cyclists group leaves for Turkana)
- Then DONATE / BUY food donations together, which will be catalogued and shared by a volunteer attendee to all participants on both groups.
- Pictures of deliveries and receipts at the school will be shared too.

Urgent Needs: Food, Water
Other Needs: Books, Pens, Sanitary towels, etc.

How to Participate:
1. You can join us at Java to donate/buy the food,
2. You can courier items/books/toys for donation,
3. You can join the group delivering the food to the school in Turkana here: Protected content over Easter
(reach out for details)
If buying food please bring Cash/MPesa.

See you soon!
