The Tana River Emergency Program (TEREF)
 
During the recent inter ethnic clashes conflicts in Tana River, more than 100 people were confirmed died, hundreds of households displaced, houses and livelihoods were destroyed. Hospitals and clinics were overwhelmed by the increased number of patients, and their supplies rapidly depleted. 
Nurses and doctors from ‘wrong’ communities had to flee for their lives even as tensions and ethnic animosity escalated. Hundreds had gone through traumatic experiences; women and children had been forced to flee their only shelters and homes. 
Majority of the IDPS have now been integrated into communities around, however poor Sanitation and hygienic practices   have rendered many children susceptible to life threatening diseases like diarrhoea and Respiratory Tract Infection (RTI). Normalcy is slowly returning, although inter-ethnic cohesion is still a dream that is yet to be realized  
Since  February 2013 SJKP in partnership  with MoH and other stakeholders  with support from the International Office designed the TEREF
