Collecting water at Ifo camp/Dadaab

Newly arrived refugees in Ifo camp at Dadaab, in Kenya, have been eagerly waiting to collect water from Oxfam's newly installed taps.

 

Many refugees have walked to the camp from Somalia, some 60 miles away, and have little food to eat.

 

People who arrive at the camp receive an initial kit and food ration to last them for ten days. But they will not be officially registered until mid to late September. Meaning those who arrive today will have ten days food to last the next 60 days.
