What you need to know:

  • During the exercise, small business owners were also sensitised on the importance of observing Covid-19 guidelines and protocols.
  • Facemasks, hand washing soaps and clean water are neither affordable nor a priority to many slums dwellers.  

Residents of Mathare slums in Nairobi on Thursday benefitted from free facemasks and handwashing soaps from the German Embassy in Nairobi in partnership with Billian Music Family, a resource and leadership center.
