We care … impressions from the youth project in Mukuru slums

„We walked around the streets distributing liquid soap to the shops, hotels and small business traders that have installed hand washing points as we encouraged them to keep doing this. We were greeted with joy, smiles and appreciation as no other group had done such since the first case was announced by the Kenyan Government on a household sensitizing,“ describes Francis the activities that were launched yesterday.

Mama True and Mama Lynne learned on how to make liquid soap

The project next team stopped also to teach some households on how to produce soap. The husband to one of the woman appreciated and said “that in the next few weeks, the wife has enough soap for general home use and spare to start selling around to earn a living.”

In parallel, a Mukuru Angaza Volunteer handed over masks to the youths. Most of the adoliscents had not managed to buy any mask since Covid19 first case several months back.

The production of liquid soap has started already in the past weeks
