The Kenya Red Cross Society has embarked on building 6,500 new homes for victims of the recent severe flooding in 28 counties.
Secretary General Abass Gullet says they have already received 1 billion shillings from the National government for the construction of the houses.
Earlier this year, the government pledged to support all Kenyans affected by rain-related calamities by contributing 1 billion shillings to the Kenya Red Cross society floods relief kitty.
Gullet says the construction of the houses has already commenced in Garissa, Tana River and Kilifi counties.
Gullet saying they have already received 1 billion shillings from the National government with the housing reconstruction estimated to cost the humanitarian agency 600 million shillings.
He further said the rest of the funds would be used in rehabilitating the destructed water and sanitation systems as well as health services in affected regions.
Red Cross is also undertaking integrated food security and livelihoods projects in Turkana, Garissa, Lamu, Kilifi and Kwale counties.
