“I am here to help, and if possible I will come back if they ask for more. I really want to help the victims of this terrible attack,” he said.

It was a similar story for Ms Anne Muriuki, who brought along her three siblings to donate blood.

She had donated blood on Monday.

“As long as Kenyans continue to help in the way they have been doing, I am happy. It is good to see the turnout here and how Kenyans have big hearts,” she said.

At the City Mortuary, the Kenya Red Cross Society set up a counselling centre for families of victims of the tragedy amid news that more bodies were expected from the mall whose section caved in.

Ms Sylvia Khamati, the coordinator of the counselling centre, said they were expecting many people who would need counselling services.

“We expect that we will have a large number of people needing counselling and trauma services and my officers are ready for the task,” she said.

Dr Sobbie Mulindi of the Nairobi Hospice was also at the City Mortuary and pledged his organisation’s support for victims and families of the terror attack.

He urged the government to improve disaster prevention and care mechanisms as well as train the necessary personnel to handle such issues in future.
