Disaster Alert: January 10, 2022
Land belonging to the Mukuru Njenga Slum in Kenya was reclaimed for road construction, resulting in the demolition of homes. Although the demolitions are paused awaiting a court hearing, 130 families have been affected and are displaced. Some have relocated to a neighboring city, while others have remained nearby, hopeful that the court rules in their favor. Compassion staff have been assisting affected families with food and temporary shelter. The loss of homes is heartbreaking, and we pray for safety and peace.
