Crisis in Kenya: Video Diary Day Four - Today's Christian Videos
Part 4 of David Darg's video diary during Kenya's Ethnic Crisis 2008.
"This crisis is much more than angry party supporters fighting over a disputed election," said David Darg, Operation Blessing's deputy director of international programs, who is on the ground in Kenya. "The election was just the straw that broke the camel's back and years of ethnic tensions have surfaced."
In addition to food, blankets, mattresses, sanitation kits, clothes, medication and utensil kits, relief efforts will also include trauma counseling for families.
"Many families have lost their homes and possessions to looters and will face uncertain economic futures," Darg said. "This, coupled with the current violence, has left many people in need of counseling."
For Kenya to recover from this crisis, security first needs to be restored. But then there is a deeper issue of healing. OBI is working with IAS on a program to train trauma counselors and place them in 100 villages throughout the Rift Valley. This program of providing relief and counseling is aimed at helping this crisis from worsening and helping Kenya to regain itself.
Please pray for the people in Kenya.
