He calls on other Non-Governmental organizations such as Catholic Relief Services (CRS) to assess his areas for easy response mainly on County peace response mechanism or to train focal persons in his county on information sharing from the grassroots to the Headquarters.
He continued, “just in few days ago we lost five children in Imehejek village following each other before I come here in which I have forwarded the report to Save the Children to go and make assessment on the samples of the diseases that caused the five death of children”.
