Members of St John Ambulance wish to thank all those who supported our response to Nairobi's westgate mall attack. Your support enabled us to rescue the hostages and evacuate many casualties to hospital. We wish quick recovery to over 200 people wounded in the tragedy, as our counsellors continue to offer psychosocial support to the traumatized.
We also take this opportunity to condole with all those who were robbed of their loved ones by this inhumane act of terror meted out by the mall attackers.Click here to view report of the St John Ambulance response to the terror attack
