Chicken Pox Update

Thankfully the home is now clear of Chicken Pox. The two boys who had the illness are now recovered, and we are very grateful that it did not spread to the others. Hopefully it will not return!

The current challenge is the rapid increase in food prices that is affecting the whole of Kenya. Basic foodstuffs like rice and beans have increased by as much as 100%, and this has resulted in high inflation across the board as wages have increased to keep pace. Food prices are rising across the world as you can read in this artcle from the Guardian. This item on the BBC website explores the reasons why food prices are rising. In Kenya the problem has been made even worse by the recent drought in the North East of the country. The home is feeling the pressure and struggling to manage with the current budget.
