Out of Somalia

Housing over 300,000 people, Dagahaley, Ifo and Hagadera, the three Somali refugee camps in Kenya, make up the third largest city in the country and one of the biggest refugee camps in the world.

 The camps have been full since a long time. In February 2011 alone, 10,000 newly arrived refugees, who left their home due to the drought and fighting in Somalia, had to build makeshift huts on the outskirts of the camps.
