Nairobi - After weeks of flooding, the people of Tana Delta Region are still in urgent need of food, shelter, access to clean drinking water and medical services, says the international medical humanitarian organisation Doctors Without Borders (MSF). MSF is calling for more concerted efforts to provide food and other basic items to the thousands of people displaced by the floods in Tana Delta region.
“I left Chewele a week and a half ago after losing all my things in the floods. At least I managed to move with all my five children thanks to the efforts of my community. All our goats and other cattle drowned. Now I’m here and have received utensils, but there is nothing to cook!” says 36 year old Riziki Juma from Chewele, now living in Molokani camp.
