The impact of COVID-19 on the Kanjoo community.

Change will not come if we wait for some other person or some other time. We are the ones we’ve been waiting for. We are the change that we seek.” Barack Obama

As a precautionary measure, the Kenyan Government has banned the sale of Miraa (a local crop); the main source of income for many in the Kanjoo community. Our Project Officer in Meru County spoke to a number of community members last week who are already feeling the devastating effects of their reduced incomes and fear for their financial futures. These farmers are looking for ways to diversify their farming outputs in an attempt to mitigate the damage inflicted by the pandemic.

Final Thoughts

This pandemic has made the world realise how much we all need to support each other to get through it. If you would like to help the Kanjoo community and save lives, please head to our donate page. Every single penny goes directly to the community. Thank you.
