Appeal for Emergency Support for our Kenyan Grandma families impacted by recent floods
Dear friends of ARK and our Adopt a Grandma supporters,
I would like to make you aware of the recent torrential rains that have struck many of our grandmas and other individuals in East Africa. Families have had to flee their homes, leaving their possessions and animals behind, due to the horrible flooding during this rainy season.
Lives have been lost. Hundreds of homes destroyed. Cattle, chickens and other household domestic animals lost or displaced. Schools and clinics have been destroyed or suffered great damage. Community resources are struggling to recover from the devastating flooding.
Many of our already vulnerable grandmothers and their children are in life-threatening situations.
Our impacted grandmas require assistance NOW.
Unlike donations to huge organizations that can take months to begin distributing support, your support to our grandmas will have an immediate and substantial impact.
With your help, ARK local volunteers can immediately begin to provide whatever is necessary to support our grandmas with alternative shelter and food until the situation gets back to normal.
Will you help get our impacted grandmas on their feet as quickly as possible? Here are a few ways that you can help:
A donation of $75 will help provide emergency meals, blankets and shelter to one grandma family.
A donation of $120 will ensure that children from 5 grandma families buy clothes, shoes and other needs.
A donation of $150 will provide mosquito nets, water purifying guard and emergency kits to 10 families
A donation of $500 will help repair the homes of 10 grandma families.
A donation of $1,000 will help 20 grandmas replace their domestic animals that provide extra income to their families
Any amount you decide to donate will be very much appreciated and will make a huge difference in the lives of our grandma families whose lives have been put in great danger by the flooding.
Together, we can begin to help our impacted grandmas rebuild their lives.
