Food Distribution for People Living with HIV/AIDS

Distribution 7

The KELC Health Department has been busy the last couple of weeks. As a part of their Sustainable Livelihood Support Program, the health department hosted three food distribution events for people living with and affected by HIV and AIDS. Each of the three KELC parishes in Nairobi held distribution events to support people in the community who have requested assistance through this program. Between Dagoretti, Jerusalem, and Mathare parishes, 600 people received food items. Of the 600 people, 450 are people living with HIV or AIDS; the remaining 150 people are widows or orphaned and vulnerable children. The food distribution included 4,800kg of maize meal, 600 liters of vegetable oil, 1,200kg of nutrition unimix, and 1,080kg of beans.

The recipients were very grateful for the food support. KELC is thankful for the opportunity to support these members of our community and we continue seeking opportunities to assist the community through our Sustainable Livelihood Support Program. We pray for God’s blessings and mercy on all people affected by HIV and AIDS, in the KELC community and around the world.
