John Cotton: May 2020
John Cotton, Chair of Karibuni Children has written to all their supporters:
"A month or so ago I wrote to you, our loyal supporters, regarding the impact of the pandemic in Kenya with the closure of schools and danger that posed to Karibuni sponsored children with the loss of their main source of food and nutrition. I asked for your help to raise funds urgently so that we could provide emergency foodstuffs to the family of each child, and thus ensure that at least the threat of starvation was reduced, as Kenya too grapples with this coronavirus pandemic.
Your response has been wonderful and so on behalf of the 700+ sponsored Karibuni children, I just wanted to say A HUGE THANK YOU!"
