Kenya - On 21st September, Alshabab terrorists claimed responsibility for the attack on the Westgate Mall in the West of Nairobi. During the terror attack, 67 people lost their lives and more than 200 victims were badly injured.
Scouts and other humanitarian organizations such as the Red Cross and St. John Ambulance came out in large numbers to offer service and first aid to the victims. A blood donation drive, to assist the victims, organized by Red Cross at Uhuru Park in Nairobi saw many Scouts, both old and young, line up to donate blood.
The Kenya Scouts Association is in the process of establishing a Scouts National Disaster Response Team that will be equipped with various skills such as Disaster Management, First Aid and Fire fighting among others. The Response Team will focus especially on rescuing and assisting children during Disasters.
