The most important starting point is the already weak hygiene system in Korogocho.
Keeping a distance, staying and working at home is not compatible with life in the slum because more than 300,000 people are living in a very confined space – sometimes even eight people in a single room. Above that, it is vital for the residents to carry out their sometimes very sporadic jobs just to get by every single day.
The only chance to slow down the spread of the virus is to help people to take better hygiene measures. Although it is recommended to wash their hands every 20 minutes, this is a big challenge for the people in Korogocho due to the water shortage. While there are already some initiatives to set up water points so that people can wash their hands more often, the number of those is far too small compared to the size of the community.
