COVID Plunging Many Kenyans Deeper into Poverty


NAIROBI - One year into the COVID-19 pandemic in Kenya, thousands of families are struggling with deepening poverty and unemployment. A survey by the charity Twaweza, shows 60% of Kenyan families can no longer afford three meals per day. In her one-bedroom house just on the outskirts of Nairobi, Rebecca Adagala prepares vegetables for the day’s dinner. Now, though – one year after COVID-19 struck Kenya – Adagala can barely afford one meal a day. A food pantry run by a charity group in Kenya is in high demand as people without jobs cannot feed themselves.
