20,000 IDP children resettled

28 June 2012, 12:38 Steve Wambugu

The government has resettled more than 20,000 children who were displaced during the 2007/08 post-election violence.
The director of Children’s Service, Ahmed Hussein said the children were resettled with their families in most parts of Rift Valley province.
He however noted that there were thousands others who were still languishing in IDP camps and refugee camps in child unfriendly conditions.
Speaking in Nakuru during a media briefing, Hussein said 6,554 children displaced during the post-polls violence were yet to be resettled while another 49,920 were suffering at Kakuma refugee camp noting that their rights to education, proper nutrition, education, medical care and privacy are being violated.
Hussein who is also the secretary, National Council for Children’s Services said his department had managed to re-unite more than 1550 children who were separated from their parents during the post-election violence.
He observed that children had peculiar problems which were not being addressed by political leaders and thus the need to create awareness among the public and set up helplines for their issues.
He said the government had increased the stipend annual budgetary allocation for Orphaned and Vulnerable Children (OVC) from Sh3.3 billion in the last financial year to Sh4.4 billion this year.
He noted that with the increased financial aid, his department would reach out to more children and improve their livelihood.
