Turkana – UJI Project

It has not been an easy time for the villages in the Turkana District.  Food and water are scarce at the best of times, but during Covid-19, it has been completely devastating. Even Pastor Dan and his small team of ministers were unable to visit, unable to deliver grains, or even to make uji.  The people were at the mercy of the land– which as you know, is barren.  As the months went by, some of the restrictions began to lift and Pastor Dan was able to get the hand washing stations that he was distributing, sent up to the people in  Turkana.  A wee bit more time, and then the local ministers were able to visit, and then in the most recent months, Pastor Dan himself has been allowed to return.  This however is not without restrictions.  It is still forbidden for outsiders to cook or feed the children in the uji program.  He is however, allowed to deliver the grains and enable the families to cook for themselves. Our Kenyan Kids was able to provide support for Pastor Dan to purchase water backpacks to enable hand washing PLUS food (maize flour) distributed to people in the villages.
