A group of residents in Kensington and Factreton has established the Kenfac Disaster Relief Group to assist vulnerable and underprivileged people in their communities. Kevin Alexander, a community leader in the area, says: “The purpose of the group is to assist those who don’t have easy access to food, water, medical care and electricity during the lockdown period.”Alexander says the key function of the group will be to collect and distribute food parcels to residents on their database. He adds that they will do public education and awareness drives around Covid-19 safety, social distancing and safe hygiene conduct. The group consists of residents, community leaders, the local ward councillor, and members of the community policing forum. Alexander says community members can get involved by either becoming a volunteer or by donating. Helen Jacobs, councillor for ward 56, says: “We have erected a container opposite the police station in Kensington. This is also where people can drop off any donations.”Jacobs says they are still seeing children playing outside. “We are doing awareness drives with the police, speaking to residents over a loudhailer, pleading with them to keep their children indoors. I know we have many backyard dwellers in the area and for them staying inside might be difficult but I ask them to stand outside their gates but not walk around.”Jacobs encourages residents to adhere to the lockdown regulations to curb the spread of the virus.
