The survival of households in Kamukunji village, Eldoret, Kenya amidst the Covid-19 socio-economic crisis

Abstract

The Covid-19 pandemic and its prevention measures has pushed households to extreme mental, social, and economic difficulties. Though the government of Kenya has tried to cushion vulnerable households, only a few households have benefitted due to limited funds. As a result, many households are left to devise strategies to cope with the harsh realities of everyday life within the pandemic. Using narratives, this paper explores the strategies of selected residents of Kamukunji who strive for the survival of their families and community.
