Britain donates Sh 556 million to help flood victims 

Britain has donated €200,000 to the country to help victims of floods arising from ongoing heavy rains. The support is at present expected to benefit 41,462 listed flood victims in various regions to access household needs to ease their hardships. Kemi Williams the Development Director at the UK High Commission said that the money is being released through the Start Network, globally linked humanitarian agencies working with NGOs. The aid comes at a time when various spots in the country face disaster due to heavy rains, landslides and mudflows. Hundreds of thousands of people have been rendered homeless with closure of schools and hampering health care work. The diplomat said that ActionAid will administer funds to provide various services to flood victims. Approximately 42,562 people of all groups including women and children are expected to be reached by this project directly or by extension from those reached out.
