Feeding 24,000 people, an act of mercy and an act of peace
Voice of America reported an uplifting story from the midst of the coronavirus travesty in Kenya. A noble-spirited safari operator by the name of Pankaj Shah has used the resources and knowledge he has of his native Kenya, normally reserved for tourists, to instead feed his countrymen.
Shah reports that several in his community have gone without eating for days on end. As he was quoted by Voice of America,
"One old woman told us she hadn't eaten for days."
Shah reported that as the areas in his locale went under total coronavirus lockdown people became both "hungry and angry." Shah petitioned a few friends to help him. Feeding the 24,000 people that they reached likewise became an act of maintaining peace.
Shah is asking any Kenyans who have the income to support the initiative to donate the equivalent of $40 USD in Kenyan shillings to sustain the program.
