• Kenya flood response


Salvation Army teams have joined the emergency response effort in Kenya following devastating floods and landslides.

Salvation Army teams in both Kenya East and West territories are on the ground in many areas affected by the past weeks of heavy rain.


The deluges have caused severe flooding and landslides across Kenya, killing at least 188 people with others still missing.


Around 200,000 people have been displaced, with some of them evacuated due to the risk of dams spilling. Many people have lost their homes, livelihoods and livestock.


Salvation Army teams are preparing for the provision of food, blankets and hygiene kits.


Captain Benjamin Omugah, Emergency Officer in Kenya West, reaffirmed The Salvation Army’s enduring commitment to serving humanity with compassion and integrity, saying, “By prioritising the provision of relief items, The Salvation Army aims to enhance the resilience and dignity of the affected families. Through these efforts, we are not only meeting immediate needs but are also laying the foundations for long-term recovery and community empowerment.”
