Over 15,000 Kenyan children may not resume learning due to flooding: charity

Nairobi, May 10 (UNI) More than 15,000 children in Kenya will be unable to return to school next week due to heavy rains and floods that have submerged or destroyed at least 62 primary schools across the country, a global charity said on Friday.
Save the Children said the informal settlements in the Kenyan capital of Nairobi have been particularly hard hit, with families losing their homes and livelihoods. According to the charity, more than 7,000 people have been displaced by the heavy rains and flooding in the Mathare slums alone.
"The impact of the floods on children is disastrous and threatens their rights. As a child rights organization, we recognize the importance of coordination of efforts to ensure that children's lives and those of their families are restored to normalcy," Mohamed Abdiladif, Save the Children's acting country director for Kenya and Madagascar, said in a statement issued in Nairobi.
