Responding To Humanitarian Crisis

By a male, 22-30 years old, in Turkana, Kenya
Map of Responding to Humanitarian crisis An organization has been responding to humanitarian crisis by focussing mainly on shelter provision, sanitation, Education, Environment & Livelihoods as well as camp management. The number of Somali civilians fleeing their country has been on the increase amid deteriorating security & drought in Somalia. This has increased pressure on the already overcrowded camps which have not been able to accomodate more refugees. The newly arriving refugees have been settling in unplanned areas within or outside the existing camps exposing themselves to sexual & gender-related violence as well as public health risks.

A Child's Fate

By a male, 16-21 years old, in Nairobi, Kenya
Map of A CHILD'S FATE a six year old child who had been raped in a small village called kianda kibera had this day been tired of her step fathers threats and broke the news to the neighbours this day when she screamed during the act. when the neighbour had her scream quickly she came and found the man raping the child. the man had not realized taht the neighbour had reported and he continued with the act. the neighbour was shocked and called for attention when people gathered and the man was questioned, he denied it during the daylight despite the evidence. some of the people who reported got upset and started beating the man. they claimed to be feeling the pain of the child. not long did the police come to his rescue and he was rescued from the angry mob who were really yearning to kill him. he was taken to the nearby police station and later reported to court by the children's rights authority. in court he was charged for two years and my wonder has been after that where will he go since the family since the family still stays together as one. the man has currently changed his character in jail and is worse than he was before.
