Areas of Mumias West devastated by flooding
May 2020

The banks of the River Nzoia have burst having a catastrophic effect on Mumias and the wider communities.

So far in Kenya, over 200 people have died from the flooding and the landslides caused as a result. This number far outweighs the current impact of COVID-19 – which has so far led to 40 casualties across the country.

over 200 people have died from the flooding and the landslides caused as a result.

The Nasio team are working hard with the Ministry of Health to support all the families who have been affected by the flooding. The first priority has been to find these families shelter. 73 households have been evacuated from their homes to the 7 nearby primary schools in the area. However, with so many families sharing such a small space, it has been a real struggle to protect against outbreaks of cholera, malaria, and COVID-19. Prisca and her team have done a fantastic job to install 5 tippy taps at the different primary schools to protect against this as best they can.

The team in Kenya have also continued to support those who are most vulnerable, providing pregnant women and children under 5 with flour and milk for porridge.

One of the people affected by the flooding is Margret Mukabana who gave birth to twins on the 2nd May. Unfortunately, Margaret’s home and all of her possessions have been washed away and her husband – who was working to harvest sand on the banks of the River Nzoia – has lost his job as a result of the flooding. Margaret, her husband and their six children were living in Shibale Primary School but thankfully have now been moved to rented accommodation.

Margret, like many families in her position, is still in great need of many supplies having lost almost everything she owns. Our staff and volunteers in Kenya have done a great job to donate clothing, uniforms, and sanitary towels, however, a lack of food continues to be a major issue with crops being destroyed by the flooding. These families are also in desperate need of appropriate bedding, mosquito nets and utensils.

During this extraordinary and difficult time, we thank all of you for your support. Please keep the families affected, and indeed the whole of Mumias county in your thoughts and prayers.

Publishing in Africa at the London Book Fair By Katie Isbester

In further support of the Nasio Trust’s Library appeal, Katie Isbester talks about her recent trip to the London Book Fair and a fortuitous discovery!

I didn’t mean to go to the talk. There were some 30,000 people at the London Book Fair and I was supposed to meet at least a few of them. Instead I found myself going to a talk on publishing in Africa because of Nasio Trust. I knew it was trying to build a library, the first of its kind in Western Kenya, and I was rather curious.
