Ann Wanjiru is disabled. She was a trainee in the Sheltered Workshops. Now she is at home and wants to work.
The Kenyan television KBC Channel 1 reports on the problems of people with disabilities during Corona.
Here is the report on KBC...
We are happy that the local newspaper Rieser Nachrichten is interested in our association.
We hope to inform many people in the Donau Ries district about the difficult situation in Munyu and Kenya.
With this motto, the 2019 high school graduates of the Nikolaus-Kopernikus-Gymnasium donated to various school associations. We say thank you for a donation of 1,500 €!
It is not a matter of course that former students remember Munyu after graduating from their high school. The students donated the surplus of their Abitur funds to OASA.
The pupils collected the money during their two last years at high school. In order to finance the Abitur ball they organized various events, cake sales or a stand at the local Christmas market.
Thanks a lot to all former students for your generous support!
While the summer holidays have started almost everywhere in Germany and you sometimes get the impression that the corona pandemic is almost over, the situation in Kenya is still very dramatic.
Officially, around 16,000 cases and around 600 new infections per day were reported at the end of July. Around 5000 tests are done every day. The extent to which these figures correspond to reality remains to be seen.
The world shop in Weißenhorn now sells beautiful bracelets and necklaces. You can buy nice bags and aprons with African patterns. They were made in the Creative Arts Department of the Maria Magdalena Sheltered Workshops.

The metal workshop made railings, bars and gates for the Watoto Wenje Ngufu orphanage. The parts were all delivered to the orphanage and Julius started the installation.
However, he was not allowed to go back to Munyu that evening because the facility is in a different district.
Julius had to rent a room and had to live there until all the work was done.
Everyone hopes that restrictions in the Greater Nairobi district will end soon.
The employees with disabilitiers still have to stay at home. That is why the life assistants Salim, Emmanuel and Kennedy work on the farm.
They help farm manager William to look after the cows and chickens, and they work in the greenhouse and on the vegetable fields.
Mary usually guides the trainees with disabilities in making jewelry. Or she tailors overalls and other work clothes for the employees of the Sheltered Workshops.
Now she sews masks. They are distributed to all employees. The persons with disabilities also get masks. The rest is sold.
Maria and Larissa sell self-made things, children's books and crime novels.
They want to support the children of the orphanage Hope and Faith. They have great fun in selling.
Neighbors, passers-by and friends are very generous and donate for the orphanage.
As a small thank you everyone gets a nice stone.
