An update from the WKW Centre
Thanks to your amazing efforts, the team at the WKW centre have been able to continue providing vital support to families ways.

They are now sourcing computers and should be able to purchase 20 this week to assist the children with their online learning. Whilst they wait for these new computers, children are able to come to the centre in small numbers to interact with their teachers and keep up to date with their learning. The extra computers will assist with social distancing and enable more children to have the opportunity to work online. 
This week, 250 food parcels will be distributed to our families. As well, hot lunches are being made everyday to feed orphaned children and those considered at risk.

The staff are also busy visiting families at home to ensure they have food and the basics required to keep safe. 

"They are so happy you take care of them with love and care. They said that they are enjoying the warmth of the house because of you. The father has not yet gotten a job yet and we continue to give them food."

Mask are actually creating health risks for many of the families as they do not have the funds to purchase enough of them. Families reuse them continuously and, even worse, children have been seen picking up discarded used ones in the slums to reuse. Our staff are sourcing as many homemade ones as possible as these can be rinsed and re-worn but supply is proving difficult.

Money from the relief fund is also being directed to the purchase of masks $10.00 buys 5 masks. If you are able to donate funds to help with the cost of this project, it would be greatly appreciated.
The relief fund has funds set aside for the months ahead to assist with food, schooling and any other emergencies the families find themselves in.
None of this would be possible without your generous support for which we are very grateful.
