How You Make a Difference
Where Your Purchase is Helping
Eunice Atieno, a buyer at a roadside green grocery shop, washes her hands before embarking on her shopping in the Mathare settlement of Nairobi, Kenya on June 2, 2020. Since she will be holding the groceries with her bare hands as she chooses the ones she wants, she has been encouraged by the owner of the grocery shop to wash her hands to prevent the spread of COVID-19. Mennonite Central Committee (MCC) funded 50 handwashing stations that were provided by partner Centre for Peace and Nationhood (CPN).
This handwashing project is an extension of the CPN maternal and child health program. CPN is an MCC partner and a project of Kenya Mennonite Church. CPN provides health training to women in sections of the Mathare informal settlement in Nairobi, where families commonly live in one-room shacks without adequate nutrition, clean water or latrines. Using a care group model, CPN staff train volunteer health promotors who in turn teach care group volunteers about hygiene, sanitation, antenatal care, labor and delivery, and breastfeeding.
