update:June 01,2020
UNITED NATIONS, June 1,2020 -- The United Nations has released 3 million U.S. dollars in emergency funds to aid almost 302,000 flood victims in Kenya, a UN spokesman said on Friday.
"Our humanitarian colleagues tell us that seasonal heavy rains have affected nearly 302,000 people in 43 of the 47 counties," said UN secretary-general's deputy spokesman Farhan Haq.
The UN Central Emergency Response Fund allocated the 3 million U.S. dollars to support humanitarian partners, providing shelter, food, water, sanitation and health services to the affected population, Haq said. Emergency shelter and non-food items have been distributed to over 5,600 households.
The Kenya Red Cross Society said that over 211,000 people are displaced from their homes, up from 116,000 at the beginning of the month. Nearly 27,000 livestock have been lost and over 30,000 acres of crops submerged, increasing the risk of food insecurity across the country.
