TANA APPEAL

Please give generously for Emergency Humanitarian Support to Tana River Delta Violence Survivors

Nature Kenya has worked with communities for six years to promote ecological sustainability in the Tana River Delta. We have been very saddened by the recent violence. The clashes have left 13,500 displaced and another more than 30,000 people affected. The displaced – many of them children, mothers and the elderly – are sheltered at Red Cross temporary camps in Dide Waride, Mpeketoni, Witu and in swampy forests along the shores of the Tana River in Kau, Kilelengwani, Semikaro, Tizama Lako and Ozi. These people are living in extremely harsh conditions with little food, swampy conditions and frequent downpours. These are people we have worked with to conserve the environment and improve their livelihoods. We are urgently asking well-wishers, both persons and institutions, to donate so that we can provide emergency food response. We will link and work with institutions such as the Kenya Red Cross.

Please donate as much as you can. You can donate as follows:

  1. The Nature Kenya Mpesa Account, following the simple steps:
  • On your Mpesa menu select “pay bill”
  • Enter business number 100300
  • Account number: enter “Tana donation”
  • Enter the amount, enter your PIN
  • Confirm details and press OK

2. Write a cheque in the name of Nature Kenya and mail to P.O. Box 44486, 00100, Nairobi, Kenya

3. Cash donations will be receipted at the Nature Kenya Office at the National Museums of Kenya grounds in Nairobi.

4. Pay using your debit/credit card through any of the options below.     

           

All funds raised will go to support communities in the Tana Delta. Nature Kenya will use your donation to buy porridge flour for children and the elderly, cereals and legumes, vegetable cooking oil, tea, salt and other priority food items. Nature Kenya will link and work with institutions such as the Kenya Red Cross to distribute these items to the displaced people. Donations in excess of immediate basic needs will be used by Nature Kenya later to enhance the resilience of local people in the Tana Delta by providing seeds, farming tools and similar support.

Please give generously. Thank you so much for your support.
