While children in every country have struggled with the impact of COVID-19 on their education, the report finds that refugee children have been particularly disadvantaged. Before the pandemic, a refugee child was twice as likely to be out of school as a non-refugee child. This is set to worsen – many may not have opportunities to resume their studies due to school closures, difficulties affording fees, uniforms or books, lack of access to technologies or because they are being required to work to support their families.

You must be open minded during this time and consider the refugees living in our country. They may not have an easy access to many things that are a basic need including healthcare and education.
Open your hearts as well as your doors to assist them in any way as we hope to come to a semblance of an end to the COVID-19. The government of Kenya has been reporting declining cases but we are not yet out of the woods. Stay safe and help the refugees living among you.
Maintain brotherly and sisterly love throughout.
