Displaced Somalis pour into refugee camps

Thousands are fleeing drought in the Horn of Africa which has severly affected Somalia.

    Thousands of Somali refugees fleeing drought in their home country are continuing to pour into the Dadaab refugee camp in neighbouring Kenya.

    People have lost their homes, their livestock and their livelihoods.

    Many are preparing to be at Dadaab for a long time to come.

    Although Somalia is the worst affected by the drought in the Horn of Africa, some 12 million people across the region are also at risk.
