MOHI Sponsor COVID-19 FAQ for MOHI Sponsors
To be posted on the CMF Website
What is the COVID-19 situation like in Kenya?
The first confirmed case of COVID-19 in Kenya was announced on March 13. Since then, the number of cases has risen steadily. For current statistics, please click here.
In an effort to curb transmission of the virus, the Government of Kenya has mandated a variety of restrictions that include social distancing measures, wearing masks in public, school closures, certain business closures, a nightly curfew, county border closures, and international border closures.
Are schools closed?
Yes. All schools in Kenya, including MOHI and boarding schools, have been closed until further notice.
Does my sponsorship make a difference right now?
Yes! And in many ways, now more than ever. This is a chance for you to stand with your sponsored child, their family, the community, and say, “Together, we will overcome.” It’s a chance to trust in God, show bold faith, and watch as He uses the resources you give to help those in need.
Your sponsorship continues to provide the funds needed for MOHI’s operations in and around our schools nationwide. From food to medical services to staff salaries, your generosity helps us be the hands and feet of Jesus.
How is MOHI continuing to serve students and families during this difficult time?
While obeying government directives, we’re still doing our best to meet the needs of our students and their families on a daily basis.
How can I support my sponsored child during this time?
Pray for physical, emotional, and spiritual protection for your child, their family and the community they live in. Ask God to comfort your child and provide everything they need during this crisis.
How can I support MOHI during this time?
Is my sponsored child sick? Will I know if my sponsored child is sick?
Under Kenya’s protection laws, we are unable to disclose the health status of a child without the consent of their parents. The child you sponsor may choose to write to you about any illness they encounter, but we will not ask them to.
Can I still send a gift or a letter?
While we appreciate your support, please do not send gifts or letters at this time. The USPS, and other delivery services, have temporarily stopped service to Kenya. If you recently sent a gift or a letter through the USPS, more information regarding returns can be found here: https://about.usps.com/newsroom/service-alerts/international/kenya.htm
Should I expect a letter or a thank you note?
Unfortunately, our students were unable to write their first sponsor letter of the year before schools closed. We look forward to having the students write letters to their sponsors once schools re-open.
