Bolt has partnered with the Kenya Red Cross to support flood victims across Kenya through a new category on its app, the “Flood Assist” category. Bolt will initially contribute Ksh 5 million, with a total goal of raising KES 10 million through this category. 

5% of each ride’s revenue from this category will go towards supporting the victims of the recent floods.The donation seeks to help those impacted by recent floods, which have caused significant loss of life, displacement, and damage to property and infrastructure.

Linda Ndungu, Country Manager for Bolt Kenya, stated, “As a mobility company rooted in the communities we serve, we believe it’s our duty to support those in need during challenging times. By unveiling the ‘Flood Assist’ category and contributing an initial KES 5 million, we aim to inspire and encourage Kenyans to join us in supporting flood relief efforts. This initiative allows us to use our platform to make a meaningful impact and provide much-needed assistance to those affected by the devastating floods”

The death toll in Kenya’s devastating floods has risen to at least 228. 72 people are currently reported missing and 164 have been wounded, with more than 223,000 people have been affected by the floods according to the Government of Kenya. 

Bolt’s partnership with the Kenya Red Cross will ensure that the funds raised are used to provide relief food, relocation support and reconstruction of water, sanitation, and hygiene facilities in the affected areas. 

Dr Ahmed Idris Secretary-General of the Kenya Red Cross said “We deeply appreciate Bolt’s commitment to supporting the flood victims in Kenya. This collaboration is crucial in amplifying our efforts to reach more people and deliver the necessary aid to communities devastated by the floods. With Bolt’s partnership and their generous initial contribution, we can provide critical support, such as food, shelter, and medical assistance, to those who need it most. It’s through the involvement of partners like Bolt that we can significantly improve the lives of those affected by this disaster.”

Bolt is asking Kenyans to join this drive and contribute to the effort by using the “Flood Assist” category for their rides.
