Kenyan Community Impact: Safe Hands (18/09)
KEY UPDATE ON MILESTONES ACHIEVED:
Over 550 jobs were directly created by the Safe Hands Kenya programme in the last 5 months within community based organisations and through procurement of locally sourced inputs .
Within the first 5 months, Safe Hands Kenya reached 2 million of the most vulnerable Kenyans with products and services for rapid mass sanitation and the Tiba Ni Sisi campaign reached over 3 million Kenyans with messaging to inform people about the risks of corona-virus and to motivate them to adopt behaviours such as hand washing with soap, mask-wearing and social distancing to reduce their risk of infection.
123 tonnes of locally produced soap and 1750 locally manufactured hand washing stations were distributed, together with 500, 000 locally manufactured reusable masks .
