    Humanitarian Programme

    The Programme aims at emergency response, Disaster Management, Mitigation and Response Programmes. Through the Programme, Caritas Kenya coordinates emergency activities while at the same time integrates long-term development interventions in a bid to build mitigation capacities for disaster prevention.

 The Programme seeks to effectively intervene Kenya’s disaster profile which is dominated by cyclical phenomena such as drought, famine, and floods. The Programme also responds to other recurrent tragedies in Kenya such as fire, terrorism, diseases, and epidemics. 

The Programme’s approach emphasizes on both Community/Beneficiary and various stakeholders’ Preparedness on Disaster Risk Reduction activities and strengthening the resilience of vulnerable groups to cope with potential disasters. 

The Programme’s overall goal is to establish and maintain an efficient, effective and coordinated system for managing disasters to minimize losses.
