Nairobi County Launches Disaster Management Feeding Program

Nairobi County has launched the Disaster Management Feeding Program as one of the interventions to alleviate the effects of the COVID-19 Pandemic.

Acting Nairobi County Governor Ann Kananu Mwenda says the third wave of infections that caused a lockdown of five counties has exposed vulnerable families to food insecurity and other challenges which must be addressed.

Speaking when she launched the program at Mama Lucy Kibaki hospital, Kananu said they have set up an internal technical team within the Disaster Management Department tasked with carrying out an elaborate mapping of the most vulnerable within the 17 sub-counties.

Over 127,500 vulnerable households in need of support have been identified and about 25,500 households of the most desperate will receive food aid and other household items for the next three months from April to June 2021.

The vulnerable population includes Women, People Living with Disabilities, those living with HIV, and other chronic diseases.
