Establish disaster fund, Ahadi Kenya boss urges government

Ahadi Trust boss Stanley Kamau has urged the government to establish a kitty to cater for people affected by disasters triggered by natural calamities.

He said the flooding and landslides witnessed in most parts of the country because of  the heavy rains have led to numerous losses and most victims might not be able rebuild  their lives again.

Speaking at Mutito polytechnic in Mathioya Murang’a county when he visited families which have been displaced by landslides, Kamau said just the way the government insured the pastoralists to cushion them from losses during the dry spell the same should apply to those  living in floods and landslides prone areas.

The kitty he said, would help the victims to relocate and carry on with their lives.

“The reason why most people are adamant to relocate is because they do not have funds to do so,” he said adding that organisation shall enrol all the people affected by landslides or flooding in various part of the country with National Hospital Insurance Fund to help them access treatment.
