A letter to Christian Aid from Christian Aid Field Rep, John Rono

February 07, 2008

"The situation here is getting worse. Two of Raila Odinga´s legislators have been shot dead. Violence is getting more organized and everything is difficult. I have been in my house for days, you have to walk if you must go to town. There´s no driving, which means no public transportation.

Everything is so expensive, if you are even able to get it, especially food. We are in a mess. There are several people in camps without anything to eat or drink. At times I have 20 people in the house who need a place to stay, since their houses were destroyed."
