We are reaching families who struggled daily to feed themselves even before COVID-19 and have now lost incomes because of the pandemic and restrictions to contain its spread.
Inauguration of the Kenswed Maternity & Health Center
Each year countless mothers and babies die from complications related to pregnancy or childbirth around the world. Even worse, is that millions of children die before the age of five around the world due to disease and malnutrition. In Kenya these death rates are still high. The majority of these deaths are preventable with the right medical care, education and nutrition. We want to help reduce and prevent unnecessary deaths. This is why we wanted to be the initiators of our project for building the Kenswed Martenity and Health Center in cooperation with the Zelmerlöw & Björkman Foundation and Rejlers.

It has been almost 2 months since the government announced school closures. The physical distance from our learners has not been easy but we are happy that this did not put a stop to learning at Kenswed. Learning has moved online and teachers have had to adapt to the new normal for an unprecedented period.
