KIBERA SLUM, NAIROBI, KENYA
Kibera is the largest slum in Nairobi, and the largest urban slum in Africa. Most of Kibera slum residents live in extreme poverty, earning less than $1.00 per day. Unemployment rates are high. Persons living with HIV in the slum are many, as are AIDS cases. Cases of assault and rape are common. There are few schools, and most people cannot afford education for their children. Clean water is scarce. Diseases caused by poor hygiene are prevalent. A great majority living in the slum lack access to basic services, including electricity, running water, and medical care.
In December 2017 I volunteered at From Kibera With Love for two months, and then returned there in May 2018 for two more months.
