Mama to the Rescue is an initiative which aims to deliver meals to the frontline workers who are providing essential services during this pandemic, and to vulnerable communities. The goal is to raise Ksh 200 million to provide support to those in need during this pandemic.
This week, Mama to the Rescue was able to raise Ksh 2,427,074.60 of donations as of 26th May. The donations went to the various frontline workers and marginalized communities. Some of the beneficiaries included MP Shah Hospital staff, Dandora and Korogocho residents and also the Kiambu paramedic team to name but a few.
The money donated comes at a time when the Mama to the Rescue has stepped up its COVID-19 response across the country. Through various partners, the initiative has managed to reach more than 15,448 health workers and communities. Over 6.2 tons of hot meals have been served so far. The top priority is to ensure that health workers are adequately supported to help curb the pandemic while not forgetting those who have suffered losses due to the pandemic.
To date, Mama to the Rescue has been able to acquire over Ksh 2 million in donations from well-wishers and corporates. The initiative aims to raise KSh 200 million in a mix of cash, goods and services and to supply a minimum of 8,000 cooked meals daily to frontline workers for the next 120 days. The initiative is currently on day 25 and so far has received 39 volunteers who have joined the program.
