Deadly Flooding


Across Kenya heavy rain and landslides has caused pure havoc for thousands of families.

A dam burst in Kenya’s Rift Valley has killed more than 50 people in two villages. Tragically, half of them were children.

The reservoir, situated on top of a hill 120 miles from Nairobi, gave way as nearby residents were sitting down to their evening meals.

The deluge swept away powerlines, homes and buildings, including a primary school.

It has been reported that 332,000 people have been displaced and 183 are reported to have died.

On the Ground


A ShelterBox Operations Team is currently on the ground working with local partners and Rotary to determine how we can help.

The team has identified a target group of 2000 families who are in desperate need of our emergency shelter aid.

These families have partially destroyed homes and are not being supported by other aid organizations.
