Where is Nairobi?
Is there Ebola in Nairobi?
Is Nairobi Safe?
Almost all of the security issues that have happened in Kenya were hundreds of miles from where our team will be. At the same time there is always the possibility of danger. The CMM, and a multitude of other Western organization, continues to have a team that live in Nairobi and understands the situation thoroughly.
Participants are living and working in safe parts of Nairobi under the care of our team and Kenyan pastors. Participants will always travel together and be with Kenyans and our resident missionaries the whole time. Our missionaries have gone through extensive safety training and planning. They are well equipped in case a difficult situation arises.
Safety is always a concern and remains a situation we are constantly monitoring both from the USA and by our missionaries in country.
