Jeffrey Okoro, Executive Director of CFK Africa, an NGO that works with community members to improve public health, education outcomes, and economic opportunities in informal settlements in Kenya, tells VOA’s James Butty, the crisis in access to healthcare has been compounded by the major flooding across Kenya.

“Given the current medical strike that the country has, this is just going to pile on pressure to an already strained system.”
