Kakuma Refugee Camp

08:21 Mar 1 2017 Kakuma, Turkana, Kenya

Kakuma camp is located in the North-western region of Kenya. The camp was established in 1992 following the arrival of the “Lost Boys of Sudan” after Sudanese civil war. During that year, large groups of Ethiopian refugees fled their country following the fall of the Ethiopian government. Somalia had also experienced high insecurity and civil strife causing people to flee. Kakuma camp had a population of 164,194 registered refugees and asylum-seekers as at 26th February 2017.
