Disaster Alert: July 2020
Prolonged rainfall for the last three months has caused Lake Baringo, in the Rift Valley, to overflow and flood the area. The flooding has damaged crops, displaced families, and increased conflicts with animals (those usually in the water are now grazing on the land).
At this time, specific beneficiaries impact details are not yet available. The church partner staff are assessing the impact and determining how to best assist the affected families due to their displacement and/or loss of livelihood.
Please pray for the safety and provision of affected beneficiaries and their families.
