Grace Githinji has a small farm in Eldoret, central Kenya where she grows spinach cabbages and corn.


This is the region that produces most of Kenya's food—and her crops thrive in the rich red soil.


The domestic tranquility of her life is a far cry from the horror of all she experienced when violence spread across the country in the wake of 2007's disputed election.


This is all that is left of her church where more than thirty of her friends and neighbours were burned alive.


SOT Grace Githinji
"I came outside and crawled under the fence, and when I looked I saw fire on this side, and fire on that side and the building was about to fall."


After her home was burned down, Grace was forced to move into a displacement camp which was set up with funds from the European Humanitarian Aid department, known as ECHO.


SOT Yves Horent / ECHO Nairobi:
A few days after the start of the violence we adopted quick decision to allocate the equivalent of 8 million dollars to this emergency.


UNICEF was immediately supported with an agreement of around 2 million dollars.


That money saved lives. This camp in the Eldoret showgrounds, like many others across the country, received equipment to provide fresh, running water.


SOT Martin Worth / UNICEF Emergency Water and Sanitation Officer 15.44:
"I think the fact that following the post election violence and 350,000 people in IDP camps there hasn't been any disease outbreaks, primarily cholera, I'm very proud of that as a team."


On-going support from ECHO and UNICEF enabled Grace Githinji to leave the camp and begin to make her living from farming again.


Thanks to commitment of ECHO and UNICEF to provide the victims of disaster not just with the basics of survival, but also the means to restore their dignity, she, and tens of thousands like her, can begin to dream of normal life again.
