Kenya Faces Devastating Floods: Urgent Call for Support

In recent weeks, countries in East Africa have been grappling with a severe flooding crisis, leaving communities across the region in turmoil. From the bustling streets of Nairobi to remote villages across the country, Kenya has faced the brunt of the relentless rains and rising rivers that have caused widespread damage and displacement.

 

Over 150,000 people across the region have been forced to flee their homes, with the death toll rising as rainfall continues. Kenyan President William Ruto’s recent directive to evacuate homes along rivers underscores the gravity of the situation. Many living in poverty in these areas are particularly vulnerable, with inadequate housing offering little protection against the elements.

In Nairobi’s Muthare slum, home to Huruma Tent of Prayer, a congregation of the Global Methodist Church, families are facing unprecedented challenges as floodwaters inundate their homes and livelihoods. GM Church leaders in the Kenya-Ethiopia Provisional Annual Conference are doing all they can to assist those in need of shelter, food, and clothing.  

 

“We stand in solidarity with our brothers and sisters in Africa during this challenging time. The GM Church is committed to providing practical support and assistance to those affected by the devastating floods,” stated Pastor Linda Davis, Chair of the Disaster Relief Taskforce of the GM Church. “Together, with our partners and the global community, we will work tirelessly to alleviate suffering and rebuild lives the best we can as part of the mission of the GM Church.”

The urgency of the situation calls for immediate action. The GM Church is rallying support to aid those affected by the floods. Financial contributions are urgently needed to provide shelter, food, and medical assistance to those in need.

Resources donated will be directed to places of greatest need by the Kenya-Ethiopia Provisional Annual Conference Disaster Relief Team.
