Kenya Flood Victims ‘Ask For Condoms’

Several of the 6,000 people displaced by raging floods in Kenya’s coastal county of Kilifi have said they want condoms, the privately owned Daily Nation reports.

A woman told the Nation (in Kiswahili) the condoms would help people in the camps have sex without the worry of disease.

An elder at the camp identified as Mzee Kitsao told the government to consider the request urgently:

The need for condoms here is great. Some of us came with our teenagers and, since they are sexually active, our fear is that they may engage in unprotected sex, which could lead to infections.”

The Kenya Red Cross has said that at least 100 people have been killed and 242,000 displaced nationwide by four weeks of floods, landslides and heavy rains.
