Floods in Magina – update and thank you

Posted by on Apr 3, 2020 in News | No Comments


to all of you who have sent relief money so we can help the community at Magina & Ayweyo.  The response has been amazing and we are so grateful.  We are thankful that we have been able to release some funds immediately so people have been able to receive help straightaway.

We received this message from Millicent today…

“It was a hectic time, almost the whole community heard the news (relief food!) and by 10 AM people were flocking from both gates (Millicent is using her home compound to distribute the food). Workers of MIER (Our Pamoja projects in Magina are called Mier Pamoja) helped a lot, making sure people keep distance, washing hands, but day one we served more than 100 people. I hired a Canter lorry (that’s a 7 ton lorry – so not small!)  full of maize, rice cabbages, and many others, people really appreciated.”

Thank you everyone.  Millicent and James (one of our Pamoja sponsored lads, now studying building work and helping Millicent and Eric) have sent us pictures of the food distribution that was organised today.  It’s good to be able to see evidence that gifts from Pamoja have already been able to make a difference!

Please continue to pray for these poor people.  If you have not been able to give financially, but are able to pray for them, thank you so much for this too!  Prayer is powerful, and it means so much to the people of this rural area of Kenya to know that people living thousands of miles away are thinking of them and praying for them.

We are hoping to be able to support the community for as long as we can since getting food is so difficult during this lockdown period.  We are thankful that the rain seems to have stopped and the sun is shining.  Please pray for wisdom, as we plan the next stage in helping the people who have lost their homes and contents to get back on their feet.
