Emergency COVID-19 Appeal

We're working hard to support our children and families in East Africa.

Will you help us?

Education is life changing. Now more than ever.

With the COVID-19 pandemic spreading through Africa, millions of lives are at risk due to the inadequate healthcare systems and access to basic hygiene.

Our So They Can teams in Kenya and Tanzania have expanded their work to focus on preventing the spread of coronavirus. Right now we are providing hygiene education, access to water stations and soap, and making reusable face masks to protect our community.

With your help we can protect the most vulnerable.

So far we have:

3

Established 120+ water stations providing communities with access to soap and clean water.

2

Made 2,000+ reuseable
face masks, 
with more being sewn daily by the Sew Women Can team.

Delivered 1,500 Home Learning Packs to students, with a goal of 5,000 in the coming weeks.
