This campaign was mean to help those in the refugee camp to acquire little help throug the donations that we will receive from you.This will help the refugee buy clothes,food and also supply them with clean water.Below is some the current condition that is important for every donor to read and understand the harsh condition the refugees are passing through.
In the beginning, the camp was meant to be a temporary sanctuary for those fleeing Somalia’s civil war. “The original intention was for the three Dadaab camps to host up to 90,000 people,” Andrej Mahecic of UNHCR explains.
Twenty-five years on, and Dadaab is the world’s oldest and largest refugee camp, with a population of over 300,000. That puts it up there with cities the size of New Orleans in the US, Cardiff in the UK and Venice in Italy.
It's not the first time the country has made such threats, but that
doesn’t make the recent statement any less worrying. Between them, the
two camps – Dadaab and Kakuma – are home to more than 600,000 refugees.
If they close, it’s not clear what will happen to those living there.
For a long time, Kenya has been one of the most generous refugee-hosting countries, taking in hundreds of thousands of people fleeing war and instability. Now, that looks set to change.
“For reasons of national security, against a pervasive and
persistent terrorist threat, Kenya is to close its two largest refugee
camps,” the country’s minister for national security,
A range of restrictions make life difficult for those who call Dadaab home. Permanent structures are banned,stringent rules limit travel in and out of the camp, and refugees cannot legally work in Kenya. Even if they could, education levels would make it tough for many to find work: in 2015.
In recent years, camp life has been deteriorating even more. For example, a 2011 group of people was found as
evidence of increasing violence, rape and petty crimes. According to reports, the security forces sent to protect refugees do little to help – and have even been caught attacking and looting people
But as uncertain as their lives are now, things could get a lot worse if the Kenyan government follows through on its promise to close the camps.
