08 May 2016, 09:30 Gabriel Ngallah

Mobasa - 100 families which were left homeless following floods at Bangladesh area in Jomvu Constituency in Mombasa County barely a day ago have benefitted from humanitarian aid from the Kenya Red Cross society Mombasa County Branch.

Speaking after distributing the none food items to the families, Mombasa Red cross Chief Coordinator Mohammed Rajab Said said that most of the affected families were left homeless since Bangladesh is a slum area and the situation may be more pathetic since the area is sloppy.

Rajab said that the humanitarian organization on Saturday distributed water reservoirs, utensils, mosquito nets, blankets and many other none food items.

“The county government is also assisting us by providing food items to the victims and as well trying to integrating them with other willing families within the vicinity” added Rajab.

“However we are trying our level best to ensure that these victims do not suffer lack of foods or outbreak of diseases such as cholera they will access humanitarian assistance from the ‘Kenya Red cross society’ Mombasa branch.

Rajab said that the humanitarian organization is carrying out an assessment exercise in all floods prone areas within the County so as to avoid any further incidences which may be as a result of the rains.

Meanwhile the body of a 14 year old boy who was swept away by floods at Kalahari area in Changamwe within Mombasa barely a day ago was recovered in the Indian oceans along the port of Mombasa on Saturday morning.

His body has been taken to the Portreitz hospital mortuary in Changamwe.
