Below is a copy of an email from Ladies in Action (written by my father who is not a Lady!!).
The situation in Kisumu has started to get normal, though quite a number of shops are still closed. Some of the looted ones have started cleaning and restocking. The only supermarket which is open is Nakumatt, but they are allowing only a handful of people inside - leaving people standing in long lines under the hot sun. But, at least they are able to shop. Banks are also open but they also only let a handful of customers in. Most of the hardware shops still remain closed. Milk and bread is available but at an inflated price.
Vegetables are not coming in. The only vegetables available are tomatoes and sukuma wiki. This is a locally grown kale which is part of every Kenyan's daily diet. It literally means, "Push the week!" I believe this is where my son, Dipesh got the idea for the name of this blog!! Let's keep pushing Kenya
The Ladies In Action are already in action. Saraphine Muge from Masogo village has received some flour to feed some old women who had not eaten for a week. Arrangements have been made to purchase maize meal flour from a local miller.
We would like to thank all those who are assisting in fundraising. Special thanks to Dipesh and Elodie and Susan Deans in Jersey. They have put tremendous effort in to creating a blog for this purpose. It has been less than 24 hours and we have already received £1000 sterling!! It's fantastic - a long way to go but we know we have all the support we need out there. Thank you.
