About six hundred households in Nyamware, Ebeneza, Ayueyo Roman Catholic and Alendu primary evacuation centers today received food and non food items from the County Directorate of Special Programs in partnership with Kisumu Rescue Committee – a group of philanthropists from Kisumu Business Community.
The donations included: maize floor, sugar, cooking oil, salt, blankets, and jackets.
This brings the total number of households in evacuation camps who have received relief food from the Directorate of Special Programs to 2700 since the exercise began on 23rd April.
While addressing the evacuees, Madam Ruth Odinga urged them to make do with the donations they have received while a lasting solution to their challenges was being looked into.
She also cautioned the people against being swayed by politicians who want to use their situation to settle political scores.
