Imprisoned by floods: Tana delta facing Humanitarian crisis as most homes only accessible by boat

25, May 2020

A major humanitarian crisis could hit Tana delta sub?county, with efforts to access villages cut off by floods affecting thousands of residents. the only means of accessing the area is by boat but the waterways are almost impassible due to grass, which has blocked the channels leading to the villages. Further, the access routes have large snakes, wild bees, crocodiles, and hippos which put lives of those crossing the area at high risk.
