KENYANS FOR KENYANS TASKFORCE FOOD ASSIST
As we continue to help each other at this time of difficulty, we have put together a few outlets to assist with food hampers on a long-term basis. As we must exercise hygiene, especially at this time of Covid-19 Pandemic, it is also important for the taskforce team to ensure that we give references to institutions or places that observe specified guidelines acceptable by law, and for our own interest of community unity, we should consider institutions that we are directly associated with just in case we might need to assist one directly. Please reach out.
