The Nyumba Kumi initiative started by the government should be used now more than ever if we intend to be our neighbors’ keeper. The only way to live peacefully is if your neighbor is at peace too. Your environment cannot have security if you cannot identify a stranger in your midst. Therefore, the first step to ensuring there is security is by knowing the people who live near you.
You also need to find out how your neighbors are faring on. Some of them have no food. They live from hand to mouth and therefore need their neighbors to step up and help them. Some are depressed at home. They may not need financial assistance, but they need someone to talk to. Calling to find out how this person is doing will lift their spirit and help them in coping with the situation. Remember, you will reap the benefits of the conducive environment you create.
