MEET MR & MRS MUSYOKA

I was working as a security guard in the city (Nairobi) until 1984 when I decided to move to the countryside and worked as a farmer. I own a 5 hectare piece of land and I grow grains. I have been farming both for commercial and domestic purposes. I sell some of my produce to help me cater for my children’s school fees while the rest is kept for our consumption. In a normal good season, I harvest 8 bags of sorghum, 16 bags of millet, 30 bags of maize and 3 bags of beans. However the last time I had this kind of harvest was in 2014 because of the prolonged drought.

During the last season, I harvested only 5 bags of maize, 2 bags of sorghum and 4 bags of green grams. I did not harvest any beans or millet. I decided not to sell any of the produce but instead kept used it to feed my family. That means two of my children had to drop out of school until a relative of mine supported them with school fees.

We have been eating only one meal a day for the last two weeks, and even then we are never satisfied, but what can we do?

My children complain every night but all I do is encourage them to hold on. When they are too hungry, I ask them not to go to school. As a result their performance has been falling over the last two years and it stresses me up.

The food I received from ADRA Kenya will last me two weeks, but we have planned with my wife to be taking two meals a day so that it can last even longer.

God bless you ADRA Kenya.

Mr & Mrs Musyoka received 29kg of beans, 45 kg of maize, 1 packet of salt and 5 liters of cooking oil[/text_output][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row inner_container=”true” no_margin=”true” padding_top=”0px” padding_bottom=”0px” border=”none”][vc_column fade_animation_offset=”45px” width=”1/2″][image type=”none” float=”none” info=”none” info_place=”top” info_trigger=”hover” src=”1192″ alt=”” href=”” title=”” info_content=”” lightbox_caption=”” id=”” class=”” style=””][image type=”none” float=”none” info=”none” info_place=”top” info_trigger=”hover” src=”1189″ alt=”” href=”” title=”” info_content=”” lightbox_caption=”” id=”” class=”” style=””][/vc_column][vc_column fade_animation_offset=”45px” width=”1/2″][image type=”none” float=”none” info=”none” info_place=”top” info_trigger=”hover” src=”1190″ alt=”” href=”” title=”” info_content=”” lightbox_caption=”” id=”” class=”” style=””][image type=”none” float=”none” info=”none” info_place=”top” info_trigger=”hover” src=”1191″ alt=”” href=”” title=”” info_content=”” lightbox_caption=”” id=”” class=”” style=””][text_output]*name change to protect privacy[/text_output][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row inner_container=”true” no_margin=”true” padding_top=”40px” padding_bottom=”40px” border=”none” bg_color=”#0db6b1″ class=”height-auto”][vc_column fade_animation_offset=”45px” width=”1/1″][text_output]

The network: Adventist Development and Relief Agency (ADRA)

The Adventist Development and Relief Agency (or ADRA) is the official humanitarian agency of the Seventh-day Adventist Church, a 20-million strong community, with hundreds of thousands of churches globally and the world’s largest integrated healthcare and education network.

ADRA is a global network. ADRA offices in over 118 countries are locally registered and recognized. Each country office is registered in the country where it is established and is responsible to a local Board of Directors. As a network, ADRA implements thousands of projects, benefiting millions of people each year—regardless of their ethnicity, political affiliation, gender, or religious association.

Founded in 1956 as the Seventh-day Adventist Welfare Service (SAWS) and renamed ADRA in 1984, the agency has a long and successful history of providing humanitarian relief and implementing development initiatives.

By partnering with communities, organizations, and governments, the ADRA network is able to deliver culturally relevant programs, build local capability for sustainable change and improve the quality of life of millions.

The ADRA network annual program expenses total approximately US$200 million—made possible through private contributions from individuals like you, corporations, foundations, and other entities. It also obtains funding and commodities from governmental and intergovernmental organizations such as the United Nations.

ADRA does not proselytize. God’s love in ADRA’s programs is expressed when it reaches out to those in need regardless of race, gender, and political, or religious affiliation. We work in harmony with a broad array of cultures, traditions, and peoples of all faiths, respecting the human dignity of all.
