Persons with disabilities who have been affected by the floods are among the 6,000 families in Tana River County who have received relief food and non-food items from the Child Welfare Society Kenya (CWSK) organization.
The items include rice, cooking fat, green grams, beans, maize, and blankets.
During a distribution event at Hamesa Manyatta in Hola on Friday, Jane Mwangi, the organization’s coordinator, emphasized that CWSK is prioritizing support for flood victims, including children, elderly persons, and individuals with disabilities.
She urged the recipients to utilize the donated items responsibly and refrain from selling them.
Deputy County Commissioner Andrew Mutua expressed gratitude to CWSK for their intervention and encouraged other organizations to step forward and assist the flood victims in the area.
The floods have displaced thousands of people in the country and caused extensive damage to property.
