put in place following the floods that had hit some parts of the the country during
the last rain season.

communities in the country.
Among the items donated were 915 blankets worth K 37 million , 300 mosquitoe nets
and 5 000 bottles of chlorine worth over K63 million.

facing the African people as a whole.
He added that there is need to take a strong position in ploughing back resources
into communities were the corporate worldÂ operates.
