The Foundation has a long-standing partnership with the Shamakha Foundation, a community-led project in Kenya, to support starving families in Kenya. In 2017/18, the COSARAF Kenya Feeding Stations provided much-needed food support to women and children in need on a daily basis, with some 470,000 plates of food having been provided.

In addition to its annual grant, the Foundation funded a specific feeding project in Mombasa over the Islamic holy month of Ramadan. With the Foundation’s support, over the course of the month, Shamakha were able to:

• Distribute 500 food packs to those in need
• Provide a daily meal to break the fast (iftar) for two hundred people in the Mkomani area of Mombasa
• Provide a special biryani meal to celebrate the holy festival of Eid al-Fitr marking the end of Ramadan

The Foundation is very proud of its support of the important work of the Shamakha Foundation in supporting some of the most needy families in Kenya, a country with which we have very close family ties. It is our pleasure to enable these families to celebrate the very special month of Ramadan and Eid in this way.
