Nairobi, 17 September, 2021 / 9:30 pm (ACI Africa).
Days after Kenya’s President declared drought a national disaster, humanitarian assistance is being sought for family members struggling to make ends meet in the Archdiocese of Nairobi.
In a statement shared with ACI Africa Thursday, September 16, the Apostolic Administrator of the Kenyan Archdiocese says COVID-19 and drought have combined to make life difficult for many families.
“We endeavor to extend a helping hand, to be a sign of hope to families grappling with the effects of the pandemic and the drought in different parts of the Archdiocese and beyond as part of our call to Christian charity and evangelization,” Bishop David Kamau says.
Bishop Kamau adds, “I therefore make an appeal to all Parishes, Religious communities, Institutions and people of good will to donate generously both in cash and in kind towards this very noble goal.”
On September 8, Kenya's President Uhuru Kenyatta declared drought in sections of the East African country a national disaster.
