Kenya: Help starving children through the Corona crisis
“Our 153 sponsor children and their families here are starving, and the 1160 people need your help NOW to survive during Corona” says Carsten J. Le Blond Willersted. He is the committed leader of the NGO, Periamma´s development projects in Kenya where he also lives. It devastates Carstento see the children´s joy of going to school and planning for the future replaced by apathy and desperation. The poorest must overcome many obstacles every day but the Corona crisis has depleted their energy and resources for months now. It is almost impossible to earn money for food when the economy has shut down and it is no longer an option to sell trinkets at the market or obtain a job as a day labourer. In the long run, Carsten will, in line with Periamma’s goal, help the poorest help themselves, for instance by establishing vegetable gardens at the children’s schools and help the families doing animal husbandry. A goat finds its own food in its surroundings and has 2-4 offsprings a year. These can be sold to provide a necessary income so that the family can buy food of their own choosing. This initiates a positive and dignified development. Therefore, we at Periamma have found the funds to give a goat to a family each time we have collected 750 DKK through this emergency relief campaign. Thus, your contribution both helps provide emergency relief packages now and aid in a more sustainable life for the 153 families. Cornmeal, beans, rice, oil, tea, soap and sanitary pads only cost 100 DKK per person for a whole month. This is urgent! Can YOU, your family, your friends, colleagues etc. help 1160 starving people with food during the Corona crisis then please don’t hesitate to donate.
