Our Recent Engagements
Food and Hygiene Support for PLHIV
COVID-19 has disrupted the way we live our normal daily lives. Adjusting to the new normal has been abrupt for many of us. We’ve had to change a number of things like how we put food on the table to how we take hygiene precautions.
This past week, with the support from UNAIDS and Reckitt Benckiser Group plc, Women Fighting AIDS in Kenya (WOFAK) and Network of People Living with HIV/AIDS in Kenya (NEPHAK) were privileged to receive food and hygiene kits for People Living with HIV and Key Populations.
Nutrition for Women and Children
Kenya reported its first case of COVID-19 on 13 March 2020. Since then, COVID-19 cases have gone higher by the day and Kenya is currently at 6,070 cases. As the numbers of COVID-19 cases continue to rise in the country, Women, Youth and children have and continue to be affected in different ways. This has led to massive changes in health, social and economic areas of their lives.
The measures put in place by the Government to curb the spread of COVID-19; including cessation of movement, curfew and closing most of urban and rural markets (to enforce social-distancing) have led to loss of jobs and income.
