Refugees' Survival Under Threat in Kenya as Funding Dries Up

The World Food Programme (WFP) needs U.S.$57 million to continue providing food and nutrition assistance to the country's 435,000-strong refugee population between January and June of next year. The WFP says most refugee families rely solely on food it provides to survive and by March it will have fully depleted its food stocks. The organisation says that without invigorated funding, it will be forced to completely halt all cash transfers, beginning in January.


The Dadaab refugee complex—Hagadera, Dagahaley and Ifo—is among the oldest refugee camps in the world today.
