Today in FirmRock network news. FirmRock celebrates the friendship of recent donors. As World Elephant Day commenced on Wednesday, the FirmRock organization prepared itself for future goals. 


FirmRock will now be launching the FirmRock Arts penpal program. 

Do you want to learn more about Kenya? See the world through the eyes of the children your support saves?

FirmRock will see this through with the penpal program. Penpal program will allow our children to write to subscribers directly as well as send you their personal drawings and school progress. This can be in the form of handwritten letters or in emails. 

What we need from you to see this goal happen. 

__Donations of pens, paper, colored pencils 

__Craft materials 

__Card stock, glue, office supplies 

__Also receiving small donations of $1, $5, $10 dollar increments, these funds are sown back into the arts department, and are used to provide the children with scholastic materials. 

You can also mail us books and school materials! We love to receive used books and other school supplies to build the children's library of the FirmRock Mission. Those sponsors interested in providing scholastic material need not hestitate. 

We love taking photos of our children's growth with the camera provided to our arts and media department by Mr. Duane Larkin. Thank you always to donors! You support means everything to building their future!

Coronavirus Yet To Invade Africa, But Is Already Having Impact

As of this writing, there are 315 cases of Wuhan Coronavirus reported outside of China. By what can only be described as a miracle, none of those cases are in Africa.
Yet Africa is not immune to the consequences of the disease. As is true of any disease, there are and will be significant economic fallout both from the disease itself and from the quarantine and containment procedures instituted inside China and internationally. For Africa, much of that fallout will be felt almost immediately.

First of many

This is the new official web handle for the New African Living Standard. The New African Living Standard is a passion news project created out of the efforts of the FirmRock Children's Helper media department to bring Africa news by Africans and for Africans.

Over the course of the next few months, we intend to build this project to also include United States correspondence. The FirmRock Press Team is based in the United States and so this is a logical development.

For more information on the original New African Living Standard as it appears via LinkedIn go to this page.

FirmRock Farm Review presents: Kenya in Peril

Police kill 12 citizens in an attempt to enforce COVID-19 curfews_ 
Andalou Agency reports that Kenya police have killed at least 12 people in an attempt to enforce a dawn to dusk curfew. Now, citizens wear any makeshift mask that they can muster to stave off the violence of the police.

Within the last two weeks, police became violent enforcers of COVID-19 lockdown. In this footage, by Telegraph UK, Kenyan authorities deployed tear gas. 


In Kiamaiko, a 13-year-old boy was likewise shot by the police. The officer was enforcing COVID-19 curfew: 

Al Jazeera reported later that the police were to investigate the killing of the child: 


France 24 also shared an interview with Kenya's president, who apologized for the "excessive" behavior of riot police: 
Kenya is a country under excessive duress due to COVID-19. Africa News shared this video showing Kenyans dashing madly for food relief, in a stampede, as the country lockdowns add further strain to a food supply already severely d…
