How is Kenya Coping – One year after Westgate Mall Attack?
- Created on 30 September 2014
This week marks one year since the September 21st, 2013 Westgate Terror Attack that left 72 people dead, hundreds wounded, thousands disoriented and others traumatized.
Research in the field of psychological trauma indicates that those who directly experience a disaster suffer the greatest impact: the wounded, bereavedand those who suffer serious loss. Next are the bereaved family members, witnesses of the event as well as others close enough to feel their pain. Trauma also impacts service providers.
