Food Distribution in Garissa
Earlier this week, our Canadian Baptist Ministries' team in North Eastern Kenya facilitated emergency response for survivors of the floods that had washed away farms and homes earlier this month. Medical assistance and mosquito netting were provided, in addition to supplementary dry rations that we distributed to 286 displaced households living in a temporary tented camp near Garissa.
5 kg of Beans, 10 kg of rice, cooking oil, salt and soap were given to each family.
When the floods came, most of these families fled their homes with whatever they could carry on their heads or backs. Over the past week as the flood waters recede, many are venturing back to their villages to see what has remained. Some of the farmers are even returning to their fields and are preparing to plant once again.
Supplementary rations are one way to help the community as they begin to recover from the crisis.
