Old town residents have been assured of adequate humanitarian service after an extension of cessation of movement in the area.
Kenya Red Cross Society, Mombasa Branch Chairperson Mahmoud Noor said locals will get all the required humanitarian services during the lock down period.
According to Mr. Noor, the cessation of movement should not be seen as punishment to locals but rather a move to quell the spread of Coronavirus among dwellers.
Speaking after inspecting the humanitarian service in the area, Noor said water, relief food and other basic services will be availed to locals.
“We have provided them with direct contacts for them to report on any emergencies,” noted Mr. Noor.
He said the humanitarian program is indulging the youth so that they serve their own community.
On his part, Haki Africa Executive Director Hussein Khalid said the organisation has been conducting all human rights assessment in the area under lock down.
He said locals in the area are at ease to report any emergencies, humanitarian needs or even human rights violation throughout the lock down period.
“However we have been working together with the police department and locals in the area conducting their daily activities without challenges.
He urged locals to observe health measures so as to avert Coronavirus.
