Awomen Escaping the flood area to a higher ground
Since Janauary this year in my village it's been raining cats and dogs in my village and many houses have been swept away the most affected are the women whom are now displaced in several camps where they stay under humanitarian assistence from Red Cross and the governments. These women are now really very exposed to diseases and hunger hence are very much sffering.
The assistance by the county and national governmebnt cant be enough to sustain these families who are now numbering to thousands, all the schools in the area are now been converted into evacuation centres with some being completely submerged and it really life threatening to most families living in these camps. With no proper toilets the children and women risk an out break of diarhoea in these camps since their isnt any proper sanitations and clean water for use.
With COVID 19 Pendamic these women now are worst hit than ever since they have to balltel these two at the same time and it really a worst scenario ever. The flooding comes from both the river sondu mirui which has bursetred its banks and the Lake vicrotia shores which has swollen suddenly getting into their homes.
Right now we still dont know when the Covid 19 will end and when teh river and lake woudl subside as this scenrao keeps on deteroriating with time and its sad there isnt much to be done and only teh well wishers woudl come and assist these suffering children and women and we hope that when it will stop to rain and things back to normalcy. Untill then we try to keep safer and avoid any deaths so far very few deaths due to flooding have been reported by teh government aand we hope that everyone. The women now are in need of food and non food assistence from all the well wishers out there. It's very sad indeed at the kind of vulnerabability of these women and componded with their constant suffering and worse still in the event of domestic vilence they have nowhere to loo up to.
