We're not going to sugarcoat it, it's been a deeply uncertain time. Our artisans' well-being is in jeopardy, not only from COVID-19 but also due to food insecurity in Kenya as a result of the virus and locust plague.
For more information on what's going on in Kenya, check out our Facebook Live from last week:
But it's not all bad, we're here to offer some good news!
We want to support you in staying healthy, while also supporting our artisans.
That's why we've created the RoHo Food Security Fund, a fund that is committed to providing food security to our vulnerable artisans and their families.
From now until the end of April, every dollar spent on our website will translate into a meal for our vulnerable artisans and their families. (this also includes Gift Cards, which are now available online)
If you spend $10, we give 10 meals
We're also beyond excited to be offering Kitenge (African fabric) surgical masks on our website!!!
We've begun hand-sewing these masks here in the US after realizing we have a huge amount of African fabric in stock and no use for it. Each mask has two layers of durable fabric with nylon ear loops. They are reversible, washable and unique!
