In Nairobi's Kibera neighborhood, those who depend on day-to-day wages have been hit hardest by the economic effects of the coronavirus pandemic. While Kenya's government is providing some support, a local charity has formed to pick up the slack.  The “Adopt a Family” campaign connects well-off Kenyan families with those less fortunate during the COVID-19 pandemic.  So far, the initiative has connected more than 400 families, providing relief to many families in desperate need.  Rael Ombuor reports from Nairobi.
