KENYA, Africa (Send Relief) – In a famously underserved Kenyan neighborhood, thousands of children don’t have the supplies they need to prepare for school this year.

But because of your generosity in giving to Send Relief’s Backpack Day 2022, 1,500 of these children were gifted with brand new backpacks filled with pencils, pens, notebooks, erasers, lunchboxes, water bottles, crayons, math kits and much more!

By meeting this need, you have allowed hundreds of students to attend school better equipped to successfully finish this academic year! Here are just some of the many people you impacted on Backpack Day 2022 (photos provided by Send Relief).

*This year’s Backpack Day volunteers included a few familiar faces from East Shore Baptist Church in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, and the Baptist Resource Network of Pennsylvania and South Jersey!
