Summary

As the heavy rains continue in the country, we are deeply concerned about the safety and well-being of our students and their families who reside in informal settlements. The recent long rains have brought about flash floods, displacing many families. In response to this urgent situation, NairoBits is launching an emergency relief fund to provide immediate assistance to our students and their families with basic needs, that being immediate housing, food, water, and medical care.

Challenge

Heavy rains pounding different parts of Kenya have led to the deaths of at least 13 people and displaced some 15,000, the United Nations reported. Heavy rains have displaced families and caused hardship to students' families residing in these informal settlements. These families lack access to basic necessities like food, clean water, shelter, and medical supplies.

Solution

NairoBits is launching an emergency relief fund to provide immediate assistance to displaced students and families. The fund will prioritize essential necessities such as food, clean water, shelter, and medical supplies.

Long-Term Impact

The relief fund will alleviate immediate suffering and help NairoBits families meet their basic needs during this crisis by ensuring at least over 100 food packages and drinking water are dispatched to families every month during these heavy rains. Access to medical supplies and cash assistance to address injuries or illnesses caused by floods. Facilitating access to temporary housing can provide families with a sense of stability and safety while they rebuild their lives.
