Veronica, whose daughter Rosemary is sponsored through Unbound, had to relocate after her rented home flooded. She received rent money and items for her new home as part of flood assistance from Unbound.
Veronica attempts to salvage her children’s textbooks from their flooded home.
Heavy rains pounded Nairobi, Kenya, in May of this year, leaving a trail of destruction in their wake.
Some families were rendered homeless while others lost their belongings. As they waited for the rains to stop, the corridors of a nearby school became their home once dusk fell.
Unfortunately, families served by Unbound in the small village of Rongai were among those affected.
“I would walk by what I used to call home and I could feel my knees get weak,” Jane, a mother of a child sponsored through Unbound, said. “I lost household belongings that I had worked so hard to buy.”
