The worst flooding in Kenya in 100 years.


Kenya Flood Crisis

  • 38 of the 47 counties in Kenya have been hit by flooding, flash floods and mudslides  
  • Nearly 200 people have died in the floods  
  • Over half a million people have been displaced, and of those displaced, 261,847 are children 
  • Over 4,703 children have been identified with severe acute malnutrition  

Emergency response done in a traditional manner only reaches a very small number of people with disability. The unique needs of children with disability are most often missed, especially for the youngest of children and infants.

Jill Bartley, Chief Operations Officer 

Left Behind

Kids with disabilities are passed over in the panic for resources. They aren’t able to stand in long food lines or flee the crisis in their wheelchairs or on crutches. If children and families with disabilities aren’t prioritized, they don’t get the care they desperately need. Most of these families face poverty that is deeper and more crushing than their neighbours. Emergencies like this too often take away their last hope for survival.
