COVID -19 Prevention and Preparedness, E.P., Kenya

Project Leader:

Sister Loina Irene

The Rotu community is in the remotest part of East Pokot in Kenya. COVID – 19 has locked down towns and people have moved into these rural areas, making outbreaks possible. People are anxious to secure a roof, employment and food. Preparedness is urgent! Despite the effort by the government to create awareness to its people, the Rotu community, among other interior communities in East Pokot are left out, only having heard of the disease but are not aware of its effects or preventive measures. Incarnate Word Sisters in collaboration with the chief in the area are trying to create awareness and offer support. Your gift of $25 can help the Sisters reach out and give food packets, medical kits as well as education and pastoral care to many vulnerable households.

Sr Philomena extending awareness creation on COVID 19 and other health matters in other parts of Pokot in collaboration with the locals.

At the sisters compound, mothers sing with joy after awareness creation on COVID 19, its effect and preventive measures. Sr Jennifer, sr Anastasia and sr Loina held the meeting with mothers at Rotu and encouraged hygiene practices such as hard washing with soup and mask wearing when in crowded areas as the best measures for COVID. Pokot is very dry and there is hunger. In the pictures below are mothers receiving some food at the end of training and singing joyfully in expression of their gratitute.
