British Airways Blankets To Mkondoni Village

Oct 17, 2018

In April this year over 18,000 people were left homeless in Kilifi County  after the River Galana broke its banks,  a river that stretches from Athi River to the north of Malindi.

The remote village of Mkondoni, in the Sub Location of Lango Baya, was particularly affected by the floods as all its inhabitants literally lost everything.  As a result, the village dwellers were scattered everywhere and it was difficult to locate them.

The 100 blankets which the Embassy donated, thanks to British Airways, were delivered to the Chief of the village who was able to distribute them personally to the flood victims, as and when possible.  Most of the inhabitants were working and helping to reconstruct the village and the Chief did his utmost to reach those concerned in the evening.

The blankets were extremely useful as the only bedding item (if at all) some of the inhabitants had was a donated mattress used mainly by children who for the most part were very sick.

The Kenya Red Cross, the Italian Onlus Mondo Solidale and the local NGO Karibuni also came to the help of the Mkondoni dwellers.
