AEA, HEALTHYCHARITY.ORG, AND EAK SPEARHEAD COMMUNITY SUPPORT EFFORT IN NAIROBI AMID FLOOD CRISIS

In response to the devastating effects of recent heavy rainfall in Kenya, which resulted in significant loss of life and property destruction, a humanitarian relief drive was organized in Mukuru Kwa Njenga, a slum area in Nairobi. The initiative was spearheaded by the Association of Evangelicals in Africa (AEA) and its national evangelical alliance, the Evangelical Association of Kenya (EAK).

Community members and leaders from AEA and EAK gathered at Salvation Army Kayaba Corps Church, to provide essential support to those affected by the floods. Over 100 family households received critical aid, including solar lamps, rice, and cereals, aimed at alleviating the immediate hardships faced by the community.

During the relief drive, a brief service was held to offer spiritual solace and solidarity to individuals grappling with the aftermath of the natural disaster. The ceremony served as a moment of comfort and reassurance for families who have endured significant hardship due to the floods.

In a press release issued following the distribution of aid, leaders from AEA and EAK extended their heartfelt condolences to the families who lost loved ones in the floods. They also commended the efforts of the Kenyan government in responding to the crisis while urging for prompt assistance, fair compensation, and compassionate relocation for those affected.

The initiative was also made possible through a generous donation of solar lamps from HealthyCharity.org, aimed at demonstrating the Gospel through practical solutions.
