An Asian organization in Kisumu, Vallbh Youth Organization, has undertaken relief activities in the County to combat the impact of COVID-19 pandemic.
Today, the team visited families affected by floods and currently camping at Nanga primary school in Nyalenda where they donated food and non food items.
The organization women’s wing in Kisumu, headed by Komal Chotai prepared hot meals at the school and gave out to the affected families.
Chotai says the organization has responded to other natural disasters in communities and societies worldwide including UK, USA, India, Australia and Kenya.
“Our organsisation is spread across the globe and here in Kenya, we are doing what our spiritual leader Yuva Vaishnavacharya Pujya Shri Vrajrajkumarji Goswami taught us,” she said.
Speaking at Nanga primary school during the donations, Chotai says the heart of giving was inculcated into them by their spiritual leader, the founders of the organizations.
“We are grateful for the support we received from the area assistant chief and the donation has been received well,” she said.
She says the aim is to fill the gaps that are created by the flood menace and Corona virus effects in the region.
Chotia says they are local Indian ladies with deep roots in Kisumu and are ready to support the less fortunate in the society at times of disaster.
She announced that on Saturday, the team will visit Nyaimbo in Orongo area to carry out a similar exercise.
The team is giving out cooked food, mattresses, blankets, rice, green grams, washing soap, juices and other assorted goods.
