The village of Nyandoche Ibere in western Kenya, even though out of the way, still experiences the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic. Food supplies and nutrition, while already low before the pandemic, are now smaller.
With that as a backdrop, we at Emmah’s Garden decided to channel some of its fundraising dollars to the purchase of food supplies for the village. We wanted to help the people who need it the most in an immediate way.
Immediate, to us, meant that Emmah’s Garden would provide direct aid to the village.
We brought some short-term relief to the village. Many families of the village were significantly appreciative of the effort. We distributed food to 70 households.
Nothing is too small when it supports someone or a family in need. We make sure that the direct aid food is channeled to the people who need it the most.
Emmah’s Garden remains committed to providing support to the village that translates into sustainability. We think that to teach someone to do something and to provide the support to get them started is valuable.
However, we also realize that sometimes we need to provide direct support.
For all who have helped to support Emmah’s Garden, we wish to extend a heartfelt thank you on behalf of the village and on behalf of Emmah’s Garden.
