Dadaab refugee camp was opened in Kenya near the border with Somalia in 1991 when the Somali government collapsed.
It was originally designed to accommodate 90,000 people, but has remained open ever since as the political situation in Somalia has failed to improve.
The long-running drought has left people desperate for food and water across the region. This has led to a massive influx of refugees from Somalia flooding into the camp in recent months. Now nearly 400,000 people live in Dadaab, making it the largest refugee camp in the world.
Christian Aid’s sister agency the Lutheran World Federation (LWF), an ACT Alliance member, reports figures of up to 1,500 people arriving each day where they are working. LWF is responsible for managing Dagahaley refugee camp, one of the three camps that make up Dadaab.
They ensure that people receive food, jerry cans for water, plastic sheeting, sleeping mats and other essential items on arrival at the camp.
