DEALING WITH FLOODS


 

The current flood in Kenya should be a wake up call not only in Kenya but to the rest of the world in the area of disaster management and preparedness. The current rain in Kenya has left many without homes , some have lost their property and livestock with many losing their lives. Then one wonders what is the way forward, owing to the fact that the weather man had warned us about the current rains. The time has come for us to learn some few lessons in regard to the flood that hit different parts of the world. To begin with ,it’s important to note that we need to protect our water catchment areas , plant trees , and build dams that will hold excess water and also reduce flood . People ought to be taught a bout the importance of harvesting rain water, building gallows that will minimize floods , create water channels where water will pass , this is because if we don’t create way for water, it will find its way out and the end result is flooding in our homes , our farms , our roads ,our offices etc. The solution to dealing with floods and other catastrophes lies with us.We need to conserve our environment because if we don’t , mother nature knows how to revenge, and the end result is loss of lives and property. Proper farming methods ought to be emphasized because they are very key in conserving our environment. Irrigation schemes ought to be introduced in areas that experience recurrence floods. This will minimize flood , provide jobs for people who will work in those areas and promote food security.

THEY ARE NOT DISTRACTED BY NEGATIVE PEOPLE BUT THEY SURROUND THEMSELVES WITH LIKE MINDED AND POSITIVE PEOPLE . STRIVE HARD TO BE A WINNER AND NOT A LOSER.

  2. SUCCESS IS A JOURNEY AND NOT A DESTINATION , SUCCESS IS NOT WEALTH AND RICHES , BECAUSE EVEN THE RICH ALSO CRY, SUCCESS IS NOT FAME AND POPULARITY BECAUSE EVEN THE MOST FAMOUS HAVE AN APPOINTMENT WITH DEATH , SUCCESS IS NOT STRENGTH AND MIGHT , BECAUSE THE GIANT GOLIATH WAS KILLED BY A SHEPHERD BOY – DAVID WITH A SLING AND A SINGLE STONE . SUCCESS IS BEING CONTENTED WITH WHAT YOU HAVE , ENJOYING WHAT YOU HAVE , HELPING THE NEEDY IN THE SOCIETY , RESPECTING OTHERS AND WORKING HARD . GEORGE MWANGI
