Humanitarian Efforts Hindered as Kenya Red Cross Calls for Safe Access and Protection

Kenya Red Cross vehicles were attacked, and staff injured during recent anti-tax protests, the organization reported on Tuesday.


The Kenya Red Cross emphasized the importance of safety and access for its personnel to deliver life-saving interventions, noting that their humanitarian efforts are severely hindered without these assurances. In a statement, the organization stressed the urgency of ensuring their operations continue uninterrupted, stating, "We can't provide life-saving interventions without access and safety for our staff and volunteers.


It is crucial that we are granted access to continue our humanitarian efforts without hindrance." The statement did not specify the perpetrators behind the attacks on their vehicles or the injuries sustained by their staff and volunteers.
