This week everyone at Good Hope is deeply concerned as our community’s burden becomes unbaerably heavy. After many months of unusual and heavy rainfalls, parts of our community have been completely flooded and many houses have broken down on April 21st. This concerns the area downhill from Good Hope.
At least five of our students and their families have lost their homes and are currently staying at Majengo Sec. School which had been closed due to Corona. They are staying there without any mattresses, exposed to an incredible risk for Corona.
As Good Hope has become an important center for support and advise in our community, many families are approaching us, asking for help in these difficult times. The Corona crisis hits the poorest among as, as many families cannot afford a 1 weeks supply of food, let alone have their own access to water or enough soap to wash their hands regularly.
