Abstract:
The study endeavored to assess the role of the Kenya Red-Cross Society in addressing the plight of Internally Displaced Persons as a result of 2007/8 PEV in Uasin-Gishu County, Kenya. Intra-state conflict and the resultant internal displacement is one of the greatest challenges facing the Globe today. However, despite international actors and legal mechanisms being in place, the IDP still face many challenges. The study assessed the role of the Red Cross society in addressing the plight of Internally Displaced Persons, being tackled from relevant sub-themes. The study used a survey research design. It became evident that; enough has not been done in addressing the plight of the displaced population, profiling of Internally Displaced Population was marred with corruption, and that the provision of Non-Food Items was a challenge.
