A record number of almost seven million people in South Sudan, more than 60 percent of its population, are facing severe hunger, according to a new report published by ReliefWeb. The situation is getting worse day by day. That's why Polish Center for International Aid works in Gordhim now.
Polish Center for International Aid collected funds and bought therapeutic food for famine-ridden South Sudan. The sent food will help over 800 children. Transport has been dispatched from Kenya and will arrive in few weeks to Nutrition Center in Gordhim.
- In order for a firefighter to be able to enter a room full of toxic gases, he needs a suitable oxygen apparatus. From our partner, PCPM, we have recently received a compressor, thanks to which we supplement our cylinders with oxygen. Our firefighters also participated in water rescue training conducted by PCPM experts. Tanzania firefighters were training with us - says Fire Commandant in Meru, Joseph Njoroge after receiving the main prize in firefighting competitions.
We have sent 100 modular houses to Uganda. They are used as temporary clinics in one of the world's largest refugee camps, Bidi Bidi. In this way we have improved the quality of medical care provided in the camp. The project is financed by the Polish Aid program.
Kenyan firefighters extinguish fires, save newborns, take people out from the rubble of collapsed buildings, help victims of road accidents and are more and more often perceived as local heroes. PCPM for four years has been conducted the largest firefighter training program in Kenya. Now Polish instructors also conduct water rescue classes in case of floods, which are consequences of ongoing climate changes.
