Kenya: MAJOR NATIONAL FUNDRASING FOR IDPs ON MONDAY

Posted by African Press International on May 8, 2008

President Mwai Kibaki will this coming Monday, May 12, 2008,lead a fundraising ceremony to raise urgently needed funds for the resettling of Internally Displaced Kenyans.

The Government had already allocated kshs 1 billion to establish the Humanitarian Fund which is led by Archbishop Ndingi Mwana Nzeki, but requires at least 30 billion Kenya shillings. The Presidential ceremony will launch the fundraising activities for the Fund so as to bridge the substancial financial gap.

The Government is inviting all Kenyans to participate in this noble venture. Private companies, all leaders, Wananchi and other well-wishers are requested to support the Fund so that our brothers and sisters can be relocated back to their homes.

The Government humbly requests media to prominently highlight this request so as to galvanize all Kenyans and well wishers for this National cause.

The ongoing resttling operation is proceeding better than expected and the Government appreciates the fear some people have of going back to their homes but assures them that security has been beefed up and is being provided in all areas. It may take some time for some people to feel comfortable and the Government understands this, and reiterates that the resettlement is for those who feel ready to go back to their homes and farms.
