Thank you to all who were able to make an extra contribution to provide emergency funding to our families in Meru. Because of your amazing generosity, we were able to raise over $10,000  to help these families get through this difficult season. We are humbled and overwhelmingly grateful for the ongoing support all of our sponsors give to this ministry.

Emergency Relief for Meru, Kenya

Like most places in the world, COVID-19 has forced mass shutdowns all throughout Kenya.  Many of the vulnerable families we sponsor in Meru are no longer able to work and are strongly encouraged to stay home to avoid social contact. Without access to food and income, these families are now struggling to meet their basic needs as a result of the pandemic. 
UPPC is seeking emergency funding to help families in Meru get through this difficult season. A contribution of $50 can provide over a week's worth of food and supplies to a family in need. Please consider making a special contribution for these families today.
