Jonathan Jackson Foundation Donates Foods, Sanitizers To Families In Kawangware Slums
More than one hundred families in Kawangware have today benefitted from foodstuff and essential items including sanitizers donated by Jonathan Jackson Foundation in a move geared towards cushioning the most vulnerable people in Kenya from the effects of the Covid – 19 pandemic.
According to the foundation founder Jonathan Jackson, they are eying close to 1000 families by the end of April. He asked the government to move with speed and implore mitigation measures that will see the effects of the deadly virus contained.
“We are working with local authorities to identify the most vulnerable families whose livelihoods have been and will be adversely affected by the Covid-19 pandemic, and will continue to partner with various stakeholders to cushion them as much as possible from the effects,” He said.
He noted that the pandemic is not only costing lives globally, but with its projected impact on economic and living standards, private sector players and the government will need to work together to not only help economies recover, but also ensure that the vulnerable groups in society are able to recover quickly.
“As the country continues to implement ways of managing the spread of the novel coronavirus disease, all Kenyans can feel the effects. We call upon private sector players and non-governmental institutions, to support the government in cushioning the vulnerable groups during the pandemic, allowing them to more quickly recover after.” He added.
