Kenya’s first confirmed case of COVID-19 was announced on March 13th. There are 535 confirmed cases in Kenya and today marked the highest single-day case number since the virus arrived with 45 new cases. For Kibera residents who rely on daily incomes and live hand to mouth, the measures instituted by the government to prevent the spread of the virus have resulted in a significant loss of income and staying home has proved almost impossible. Additionally, while Kibera residents are doing their best to adhere to recommended public health guidelines, challenges such as limited running water, crowded living spaces, and the need to get out of the house and work just to survive put them at great risk.

We need to act now and we need your help.
