Send Relief Delivers Emergency Rations to Stranded Students in Kenya

By Send Relief Staff

The pandemic has devastated vulnerable communities around the world in the last two years.

In response, the Kenyan government began educating the public using radio and TV to inform Kenyans about preventative measures such as handwashing and social distancing. From the day of the nation’s first case—March 13—to the present, there have been mandated curfews from 7 p.m. to 5 a.m., the prohibition of social gatherings and the strict enforcement of closed borders.

The closed borders have mostly impacted Nairobi’s large student population of more than 250,000. These students became trapped overnight. They are unable to return home to their families in the countryside, unable to work and unable to receive money from their parents.

To offer hope and help to the stranded youth of Nairobi, Send Relief partners delivered emergency food rations to 250 students in need—each one also received a gospel presentation!

Even more exciting, our partners saw 20 of these students ask Jesus into their lives, baptized five and helped start five new student-led Bible studies. This is all as a direct result of the food distributions you helped fund!

Your gifts are leaving a lasting impact on communities in desperate need of the light of Christ. If you would like to help more families in crisis, give below today!

Help communities in need survive the pandemic!
