The Government has partnered with United Nations Office for Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA) to respond to the destructive floods which have wrecked havoc in several parts of the country.
Deputy President Rigathi Gachagua said Thursday that the partnership alongside County Governments will help alleviate suffering, especially in times of disasters and other crises.
“In line with our earlier plans in response to the floods, which have wrecked havoc in several parts of the country, we will work side by side with OCHA alongside other partners and the County Governments to prevent further suffering,” the Deputy President said.
DP Gachagua spoke after holding talks with the United Nations Office for Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA) Regional Office for Southern and Eastern Africa team led by the Assistant Secretary-General and Deputy Emergency Relief Coordinator Joyce Msuya at his official residence in Karen, Nairobi County.
He was accompanied by Environment Cabinet Secretary Soiypan Tuya and the UN Resident Coordinator to Kenya Stephen Jackson.
Gachagua stated that the country looks forward to more partnerships during this time of emergency and beyond as we build resilience structures for sustainable prevention of loss of lives and livelihoods as we battle the negative effects of Climate Change.
