Zayed free spirulina distribution center. In Kisumu, Kenya.
The IIMSAM Sh. Zayed free Spirulina distribution center, which was closed due to the COVID-19 pandemic, is re-opened recently for ordinary peoples in need and the acute- malnourished victims. The government eased after the lockdown norms in mid-June. The Center has been serving to its maximum capacity of 600-700 beneficiaries daily.

Disadvantaged people are facing challenging times due to the scarcity of food. In such a situation, the strategic partnership between Hare Krishna and IIMSAM it’s exceptionally imperative.
IIMSAM Secretary General. Remigio Maradona, in his statement, said, “On behalf of the IIMSAM and our Sr. Field Director Mr. Fredrick Lwamba and Ms. Grace A. Nyalal Sr. Fiscal Affairs and all the volunteers who assist at the center.

It reaffirms my belief that when we work together, amazing things happen.”
