This is the most devastating time globally in recent history. During the COVD-19 pandemic, everyone is donating in support of frontline care, local food banks and other COVID related causes, Opulence Global continues to support the charities that have connected with us, one of which is the Kenya-Matunda Orphanage & School.
Kenya holds a special place in Opulence Global as one of our leading markets. The Kenya-Matunda Orphanage and School is a project of Lugari Women against HIV/AIDS and Poverty (LWAAP KENYA)
During this difficult time, the children from the Orphanage were left to take care of the sick and elderly and as a result, many of the children have lost their lives to the virus.
Our donation is assisting the “vulnerable children who are going through tough times during this period of Coronavirus pandemic and the perpetual floods.” according to Pamela Khaemba, the Program Director of Kenya-Matunda Orphanage & School.
Read Pamela’s letter of appreciation here:
“in the 2019 Global Hunger Index, Kenya ranks 86th out of 117 qualifying countries. With a score of 25.2, Kenya suffers from a level of hunger that is serious” according to the 2019 Global Hunger Index.
Children are especially vulnerable to hunger. Many have stunted growth, a sign of significant vitamin and mineral deficiencies, as a result.
The generous donation for Founder/CEO Ramin Mesgarlou and SVP Sanaz Hooman was allocated to the purchase of food, sanitation and establishing a greenhouse. Often, the Orphanage could only feed the children one meal a day. While our donation provided enough funds to purchase food, the ability for the Orphanage to be able to provide for themselves is our goal. Sustainability is very important to us. The greenhouse project will eventually allow the Orphanage to sustain the feeding program themselves, “during adverse weather conditions that have become a menace annually in Kenya.”
Opulence Care especially when caring matters the most.
