Support SHOFCO’s Flood Relief

‎‎ ‎

SHOFCO’s response to the flooding has been quick and community-led. We are providing basic support packages including food, hygiene products, clothes and bedding.  Community leaders in the SHOFCO Urban Network (SUN) are leading rescue efforts and identifying households in need of safe shelter.

Heavy rains are predicted to continue for the next several days, exacerbating the situation and prolonging recovery efforts. Please join us in raising relief funds to support our local SHOFCO communities.

Our Flooded Communities

Over the last week communities across Kenya have been devastated by floods.

Torrential rains have overrun riverbeds, wiping out homes and roads. Major national roads have been flooded causing traffic jams and preventing people from fleeing from the impacted areas.

So far, over 40,000 people have lost their homes due to damages and have been forced to relocate, including 38 SHOFCO students and their families.
