Famine in Africa Dadaab Refugee Camp

Dadaab , Kenya – August 14, 2011: Somalian children refugees fetch water at the new Ifo-extension in Dadaab on August 14, 2011. The new site opened to some 5,000 refugees among an ever swelling number of Somalia’s people coming into the Dadaab refugee complex in Kenya’s north-easterly province. The Ifo extension, which will provide tented accommodation to 90,000 refugees by the end of November, had been prepared several weeks ago but its opening was delayed owing to opposition from Kenyan government ranks citing a threat to the national security.
