Written by on May 20, 2024

On May 14th, 2024, All Saints Cathedral conducted a flood relief mission to provide urgent support for families impacted by recent heavy rains and flooding in Nairobi. Led by Evangelism Minister, Rev Alfred Apela and Canon Alice Otieno, volunteers from various church groups mobilized to assemble and distribute food donations at ACK Emmanuel Parish in Silanga, Kibera.

The team packed over 100 bags with essential food items, including 2kg each of yellow beans, green grams, rice and maize flour. Additional donations consisted of 1kg sugar, 2kg porridge flour, and 2 liters cooking oil per bag. In total, 122 families received this flood relief aid package.

Two special bags of donations were also delivered directly to the homes of flood victims Diana Thome and Asumuni Barige. Rev Apela expressed his condolences while presenting support to the Thome family, who tragically lost their home in the devastating Mai Mahiu floods.

This outreach exemplifies All Saints Cathedral’s commitment to serving the community in times of crisis. By coming together through volunteer efforts, the church was able to make a tangible difference for families struggling in the aftermath of the rains. Canon Otieno reflected on the mission, “It was heartwarming to lend support during this difficult season and be there for our neighbors in need.” The flood relief efforts underscore the importance of unity and compassion within the body of Christ.
