COVID-19: Jumia, Twiga Foods Partner To Support Vulnerable Families

Coming in the wake of extended COVID-19 preventive restrictions by an extra 21 days, Twiga Foods and Jumia have come up with an initiative around their distribution partnership, offering customers an opportunity to donate food to needy families in Kibera Slums.

Kenyans can now support vulnerable families for as little as Ksh 1,135 through Kibera Community based Organisation – SHOFCO (Shining Hope for Communities) in partnership with Twiga Foods and Jumia.

Families in low income, high density areas like Kibera slums are the most vulnerable over this COVID-19 period and by purchasing a package on Jumia, the public can now help support a needy family for up to one week

To offer their support, customers will have to place an order on Jumia under SHOFCO (Save a Family) package worth Ksh. 1,135 or that of Ksh 1,399 of Twiga Foods packages that can be delivered to needy families by SHOFCO.

According to Jumia, details of the deliveries to the benefitting families will be reported to donors through regular reporting.

“Through this platform, well-wishers can have full confidence that we will deliver their donations to the people who need it most. We have great data from recent deliveries to show exactly which household received donations. Our sophisticated tracking tools ensure  end to end data transparency – and we will be reporting regularly to the public. We can do so much more with the support of donors!”, said Jumia Kenya COO, Christine Sogomo.

Twiga Foods has discounted the price of fresh produce by up to 50% making it affordable for customers wishing to support the needy families saying that the scale of the novel Coronavirus pandemic has disrupted lives, livelihoods, communities and businesses leading to a growing food security crisis especially with the underprivileged communities.
