Masks further limit COVID-19 spread by providing a greater degree of

Objectives: Provide products immediately – at no cost – and with
depth and breadth of reach.

Safe Hands Kenya aims to reach ~16.5M people in the most vulnerable
communities with monthly product cost of ~$8M USD
We will ensure that our Safe Hands Kenya products are produced and
distributed for their intended use. Discussions with Government have
generated significant support and alignment to support fast-track rollout of
Safe Hands Kenya.
Governance structure and systems: We have assembled a team to
coordinate efforts across the project for the duration of the crisis.
