Since 2018, we have been supporting a training year in Kenya – an aid project supported by Cargo Human Care e. V. The association is supported by Lufthansa Cargo AG.
2020 was a catastrophic year due to the corona pandemic: In March all schools closed, the children of the children‘s home were sent home or to hostels, with the exception of ten small residents who have no relatives and were allowed to stay in the home. Social workers kept in regular contact, but several domestic situations were extremely bad. So since late summer a gradual return was negotiated with the authorities.
This long, forced stay with the `families´ had a very negative effect on the behavior and abilities of the children. Since October, the education system has been brought back on track, in compliance with hygiene rules. Now Kenya is hoping for low infection rates, so that the living conditions will at least improve somewhat.
