Goal in Kenya

GOAL has recently launched an emergency intervention as a result of the post-election violence that has erupted in Kenya. Our emergency team is focussing their efforts on the internally displaced as well as those who have fled to Eastern Uganda as refugees. GOAL is distributing emergency packs to 2,500 households in Kenya, which will benefit over 15,000 people. Emergency packs are also being distributed to 1,400 refugees in the Busia area on the Uganda/Kenya border. These packs contain plastic sheeting, blankets, mosquito nets, floor mats, jerry cans, cooking equipment and basic hygiene kits. In the Nairobi slums where GOAL has a long history of supporting development programmes, our mobile health unit has been deployed to offer medical assistance to those affected by the unrest.
