The operation aims to provide immediate assistance to cover the needs of 30,000 households (HHs) (150,000 people) most at risk and affected by floods by providing life-saving assistance for a period of six months. The flooding has led to destruction of houses resulting in displacement of communities. So far, a total of 33,081 HHs (211,155 people) have been displaced in different parts of the country. An unconfirmed number of households are being hosted by relatives. However most of the displaced populations are staying in evacuation centers and need urgent support. In addition, the most affected HHs will need recovery support. Western, Nyanza, North Rift, South Rift, North Eastern, Upper Eastern, Central and Coast regions
