Need to serve the community

Posted June 19, 2020 from Kenya

Hello sister. Most of  us are staying home in an attempt to slow down the spread of coronavirus. But being stuck at home can lead to boredom. I decided to engage more on community activities. Being a volunteer under Kenya Redcross, I am able to help in food distribution so as to help ensure vulnerable people don’t go hungry during this crisis, following social distancing protocols. While on food distribution, I came across a problem on menstrual hygiene in a certain village. We are working on that at the moment as a team and hoping that it all gets along. Despite covid 19 being a negative thing it has really taught me alot.

Dear Alaine, you have taken the right path by volunteering in your community via the Red Cross. Well done. It is true that we are all learning one or two things from this pandemic. We will certainly emerge as better persons from the COVID-19 pandemic.
