Shamas Rugby - Kenya - Covid-19 Relief Campaign

Breaking The Line US is a U.S. 501(c)3 organization. Our mission is to support projects in Africa that promote the holistic development of boys and girls from underprivileged backgrounds.

As the COVID-19 pandemic continues spreading around the world, our partners from Shamas Rugby in Kenya need your support! 

Shamas Rugby is a Kenyan charity using sport to promote the physical, mental and social well-being of children and youths living in urban slums. While their goal is to build all-rounded individuals through rugby, Shamas Rugby also aims to make education more accessible, and to provide beneficiaries with the knowledge and life skills necessary to live more fulfilling lives. 

With the recent outbreak in Kenya, COVID-19 has forced Shamas Rugby to halt all its activities. This has brought additional hardships to the families the organization works with in 7 urban slums in Nairobi, Kenya's capital.

Around 60% of the Nairobi population lives in urban slums. These places are very crowded and very poor. Practicing social distance and staying at home is practically impossible. Whereas before, these families depended on their daily jobs and, in some cases, on Shamas Rugby to provide for their daily meals, now these people are struggling even more to meet their basic needs with the current situation.

All donations received will go directly to support the purchase of food supplies and other essential goods for over 1000 families Shamas Rugby currently works with. The $5,000 raised will be able to feed 1000 families for 3-weeks. $5'000 can cater for a total of 175'000 meals over a 3-weeks period, thus enable these families to eat, support their immune system, and prevent further risks of spreading the virus.

Breaking The Line U.S. would like to raise these funds as soon as possible as the infection rates within Nairobi are growing by the hour. 

Come and support this campaign and help us spread the word to help these 1000 families in Kenya.
