Flood Victims Receive Kes 3M Foodstuff, Non-Food Items In Narok South

The Nairobi Shree Swaminarayan Mandir Temple has generously donated 3 million Kenyan shillings in food and non-food items to residents affected by floods and mudslides in Narok South.

Narok County Governor Patrick Ntutu flagged off the consignment for the residents of Narok South and the neighboring Maasai Mau Forest, who have been severely impacted by the mudslides.

Under the leadership of Nunu Shangani, Arun Rabadia, and Prakash Pindoria, the temple’s mission exemplifies the power of unity and community support.

The donation included 210 mattresses, 210 blankets, two and a half sacks of Crocs slippers, 200 bags of five-kilogram Unga flour, 360 pieces of UHC milk, and assorted children’s food and juices.

“We are here to bring hope and happiness to the families affected by the heavy rains amid this disaster,” said Rabadia.

Narok South Deputy County Commissioner Felix Kisalu revealed that since the heavy rains began, 11 people have lost their lives, and over 2,000 have been displaced by floods in Narok South Sub County.

County Executive Member in Charge of Administration, Coordination of Decentralized Services, and Disaster Management, Josephine Ngeno, reported that 1,612 households have been displaced in the upper Ololulunga and Melelo areas bordering the Maasai Mau Forest. These families are currently sheltering in nearby schools and churches.
