During the past few months worldwide attention has been focused on the COVID-19 pandemic. For us at WaterBridge Outreach it became clear that, as the pandemic spread, our priority would be to assist our partner organizations with their immediate needs - providing the basics of life (food and water) to families in their communities. All of us are struggling during this unprecedented time but for those already living on the brink of life, in poverty, without food security, without access to healthcare, and without access to clean water (to drink and to wash hands), with minimal (if any) government support, the need is acute. With your support we have been able to channel funds to our partner organizations to assist them during the pandemic. We understand that this is a stressful time for all and your support has been greatly appreciated.
Mama Hope - The Akili Preparatory School for Girls, Obambo, KENYA. With the closure of schools, teachers at Akili Preparatory School shifted their work to the virtual realm to keep the doors of learning open to all students as they stay home with their families. Through remote learning, lessons are delivered in the form of texts, videos and audio messages to their students while facilitating discussions and teacher-student interactions. To mitigate the adverse effects of COVID-19 in their community where up to 90% of residents have either completely or partially lost their income, Mama Hope and partners have been working with local tailors and community groups to make face masks available and distribute food and sanitary supplies to vulnerable families
