Thursday, May 2, 2024 - Pope Francis has expressed his concern about the flooding situation in Kenya

In the statement issued through his official platforms, the Pope stated that he was spiritually close to the people of Kenya and was praying for Kenyans.

He also stated that he and the rest of the world would stand in solidarity with the country supporting Kenyans through prayer.

Further, the Pope took notice of the disastrous effects of the floods that had ravaged the country claiming lives and destroying property.

“I am spiritually close to the people of Kenya at this time when a severe flood has claimed many lives and destroyed vast areas.
