The flood victims at Ndabibi, Maiella Ward, Naivasha Sub-County first received humanitarian aid from their neighbours who came to rescue them through every means possible after the waters hit their homes.
Visiting the victims, are MP Jayne Kihara donated food and non-food items to children and grownups hit by the floods, leaving them homeless and having no food, blankets, furniture, and other basic goods.
“I have called on the Cabinet Secretary Devolution Eugene Wamalwa to establish the root cause of the destructive floods since this has never happened in Ndabibi,” said MP Kihara.
Despite the dire circumstances, the MP urged the locals to observe the Government directives against the spread of corona virus in the country, which include washing hands, wearing a mask, staying at home, sanitizing surfaces, and social distancing.
