Pamela is a 38 years old widow who lives in Kibera slums. She lost her husband in 2007 post-election violence at 25 years thereby shouldering the huge responsibility of raising her three children. Over the last 13 years, she has raised her children through the small pay she earns working as a house help. Pamela tells us that life got even tougher after Covid-19 pandemic struck, her employer would not allow her to go to her house because of the fear of contracting the virus, thereby losing her income. The past three months have therefore been very hard for her to provide for her children and numerous times they have gone without a meal.
Pamela’s story is the story of thousands of families living in the slums. The food basket distribution has provided a lifeline for many families that are facing the risk of starvation. As a ministry planted in this community in such a time as these, we feel absolutely privileged to be an extension of the hands and feet of Jesus, not only to provide food baskets but also use the opportunity to share the Gospel with the beneficiaries. Many have surrendered their lives to Christ and we give God all the glory for the souls harvested during this season.
We continue to provide food baskets throughout this period of Covid-19 pandemic and are open to being used of God for his Glory and Kingdom. So far, we have been able to provide 1,154 families with food baskets and alongside share the gospel. This past week, we have additionally distributed 102 food baskets to families headed by widows and persons living with disability from the slums of Kibera.
Thank you, partners and friends, for your continued Kingdom partnership to meet the needs of the least of these and shine the light of Christ during these dark days.
