It is sad to report that this community unfortunately has been greatly affected by the current flooding of Lake Baringo. To our surprise the community dispensary and maternity wing has been covered by water to the top and currently there is no temporary structure to be used as the dispensary and unfortunately they did not manage to save anything from the dispensary therefore worsening the situation. This is a great concern as now community health is not guaranteed. On the other hand many have been displace and most of their belongings washed away by the floods. We have not lost hope and we are focusing on supporting them and encouraging them to rise up again and carry on and encouraging the community health worker to play a big role in assisting in every way possible. Most of their projects have been affected including their kitchen gardens leaving them with little or no hope. It is too sad because in our previous report we were optimistic that this year they won't be affected as the campaign to save the Molo River was being done but unfortunately it was not enough and the rains persisted. We have organized meetings with the affected community to plan on the way forward together and we have agreed health worker should be there for the community despite all the challenges they are currently facing. We are optimistic that our well-wishers together with our government will come to rescue and save this community we will continue with our initiatives and restart those affected by the floods to ensure that the community rises up again. We thank you for this far and your continued support toward Kokwa community's health needs and we invite you to join us once more as we continue to support them.
