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
