Low- and middle-income countries like Kenya are struggling with the COVID-19 virus now more than ever before. 

More than 7.8 million people in Kenya live in extreme poverty. Families who already struggled before the pandemic now must choose between safe water or food. They are missing meals, losing their jobs, and seeing their cost of living dramatically increase. School closings are causing already vulnerable students to fall behind in their educations. 

68% of children in Nairobi’s impoverished neighborhoods are missing regular meals because they don’t have enough money to buy food. 

Our frontline churches are doing everything they can to help children and families who are facing these ongoing challenges created by COVID-19. And you can help! 

Help restore what COVID-19 destroyed — sponsor a Kenyan child living in poverty today. Help provide food essentials, medical care, educational support and more that they can’t get anywhere else

A Quick Look at Kenya

The Republic of Kenya is located in easternAfrica. Its population has tripled over the past 30 years, leading to increasing pressure on natural resources, a widening income gap and rising poverty.

  • More than half of the country's 37.9 million people are poor.
  • Life expectancy has lowered to 56 years, from 59 years in 1989.
  • HIV and AIDS have left many orphans and female-headed households, making them even more vulnerable to poverty.
  • About 58 percent of the population survive on less than U.S.$2 a day.

Please sponsor a Kenyan child today!

When you sponsor a child, you open up a whole new world of possibilities for that child. For only $38 a month, you can help a Kenyan child experience a life changed forever through Compassion. Your sponsored child will receive:

  • health care and clean water
  • opportunities to learn job skills
  • a chance for safe recreation in a church-based environment
